Emerge Center to hold Gift of Hearing essay contest for free hearing aids


The Emerge Center will be giving away two free pairs of hearing aids to two people in need through their Gift of Hearing contest.

“In the true spirit of our continued mission to provide hearing to those in need, I am so excited that we are able to offer this opportunity to significantly change the life of someone isolated by their hearing loss,” said Nicole Stockstill, Lead Audiologist at The Emerge Center. “I am honored to be on the Emerge team where we get to give back to our community through our time and talents.”

To participate in the Gift of Hearing contest, individuals must submit an essay of a maximum of 400 words telling why they or someone they know would benefit from receiving new hearing aids. The two winners will be selected based on hearing need, financial need, the opportunity to impact the recipient’s life and the opportunity to impact the lives of people with whom they interact.

“In 2019, Emerge provided discounted hearing aids to seventy four individuals in the Greater Baton Rouge community. The core focus of their mission is helping adults and children live an active lifestyle with hearing loss,” read a recent Emerge Center press release.

Essays can be submitted online at www.emergehearing.org/contest. All individuals ages 21 and over eligible to submit an essay. Essays will be accepted through Feb. 28.
