It is time to submit your entries for the annual SAA Chapter Contest! Instead of a t-shirt contest, this year we’re having a sticker contest! This year's winner will receive $100 for their SAA Cchapter. In addition, the winning SAA Chapter will have the opportunity to sell their sticker on a larger scale to raise money for their SAA Chapter. The American Academy of Audiology (AAA) will provide free advertisement of the sticker on the AAA website. The SAA chapter will be fully responsible for the production and sale of the sticker. To participate, submit photos showing the shape and design of the sticker (.jpeg format preferred) via email to Mackenzie Sinnen by Wednesday, March 20, 2019. The sticker can be any shape and size and displayed in a variety of ways (examples: on a laptop, water bottle, or clipboard). It can be silly or serious, but just make sure the sticker can be clearly seen in the photos! Submissions will be printed and displayed in SAA Central during AAA2019 as well as on the SAA Facebook page. Voting will take place in SAA Central and online until 12:00 pm, Friday, March 29, 2019, and the winning chapter will be announced via social media.
