The Hamilton Relay Scholarship Award is one way Hamilton gives back to the communities it serves. Additionally, in recognition of Better Hearing and Speech Month each May, Hamilton Relay presents awards to influential community leaders who are hard of hearing, late-deafened or have difficulty speaking. In September, Hamilton recognizes Deaf Community Leaders during Deaf Awareness Week, celebrated nationally the last full week of the month. Hamilton Relay will also award three college students with a $1,000 scholarship.
