Clerc Cultural Committee Awards

The Clerc Cultural Committee Awards were established by the CCC and GUAA to honor outstanding contributions to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community.

The 3 Awards: Innovation, Art, and Advocacy are presented to either an individual, group or organization that has made outstanding efforts at the local, state, national or global level.

Nominees may be either deaf or hearing and do not have to be alumni of Gallaudet University.

Nominations can be made by anyone. A second nominator is required for the nomination to be considered and cannot originate from a current member of the CCC. All nominations submitted may be considered for up to two award cycles.
