And the Winner is...JORDAN!

The contest was entitled: "Different Yet the Same" and for the second year in a row, Jordan participated. Last year he won honorable mention for his essay, but this year, he won a prize of 167 euros for this drawing:

His class came to the award ceremony, and he along with two other classmates went to receive their prize before the jury and in front of a crowd of 200.

Then, the woman in charge of distributing the awards asked Jordan to speak.
Jordan took the microphone and said, "I'm Deaf. I would like to thank my class for always helping me along with my teachers. It isn't always easy and they are always there to encourage me. I have grown a lot in the past three years."
His class cheered.
The jury smiled.
