MED-EL’s ‘ideas4ears’ competition 6 – 12 year olds 

Posted in News

Free to enter ideas4ears competition 6 – 12 year olds 

Monday 9th November  was World Inventors’ Day. MED-EL have released details of their annual ‘ideas4ears’ competition. Children  are invited to create an invention to improve the quality of life for people with hearing loss.

MED-EL say

“We want to celebrate children’s creativity whilst improving the understanding of the challenges associated with hearing loss and deafness as well as the benefits of treatment.

Entries can be sent via a video, drawing, or sculpture, but the most important factor is for young people to think big and channel their ideas to support those who cannot hear. Parents interested in the competition should visit www.ideas4ears.org/enter to submit their child’s entry and view the terms and conditions. The closing date for entries is midnight on Kids Inventors’ Day, Sunday 17 January 2021.  Winners will be notified on 31st January 2021 by email.

Win fabulous prizes!
With prizes being awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winning entries, the winners of ideas4ears UK will each win individual educational resources to support their learning e.g. notebooks or tablets. All ideas are welcome, from the crazy to the conventional; the only criteria are the inventions need to have the potential to help improve the lives of people with hearing loss at any age.

Good luck to all children who enter and let’s help raise awareness of hearing loss whilst challenging our next generation of inventors!”
