This Year's Theme Announced!

Our theme this year is Imagination Out of the Box: A Deaf Perspective. Get your creative juices flowing and start thinking " out of the box" for the upcoming t-shirt art contest.

Registration News!

Beginning this year, all registration will be done online. We know there will be some 'kinks' that will have to be worked out. We would appreciate your help in making this new system as easy and efficient as possible, so please direct any feedback to members of the planning committee.


Amber Galloway-Gallego will be with us again this year interpreting music in her own unique and dynamic style. If you missed her last year, you have a chance to see her in 2016. You can find her ASL interpretations of many of our favorite songs on You Tube. Here's just one.
