For the third year running, the Wits Language School (WLS) is hosting a South African Sign Language (SASL) song translation competition where R7500 is up for grabs.

This competition is in honour and recognition of Deaf Awareness Month which falls in September.

The aim of the competition is to raise awareness of deafness, as well as to encourage deaf and hearing persons to work together.

The competition closes on 27 August 2014.

Eligibility: The competition is open to anyone resident in South Africa – individual or group performances, both hearing and deaf. There is no age restriction.

Competition entry: Being part of it is easy – all you need to do is select any English song, perform it in South African Sign Language, record the performance then share it with us on YouTube!
