Text: We Live in Tetra Nation

About the 2022 Campaign

Each year, TetraNation recognizes the work of Tetra Society’s nearly 300 volunteers across Canada. This year’s TetraNation competition is running from February 1st to April 23rd. We will announce the winning videos during National Volunteer Week Tetra’s volunteer network is so incredibly giving of their time and talent as they create customized assistive devices that address barriers in the lived environments of people with disabilities.

Starting on February 1st, we’ll be releasing 10 videos every 2 weeks. Make sure to vote for your favourite(s). Once the two weeks have passed, the next 10 videos will be released, for their turn in the spotlight. 

After all 50 videos have had their two weeks, we’ll open up all entrants for the final two weeks of the contest, which culminates during National Volunteers Week April 24-30, where we will be announcing the winners on ConnecTogether

Be sure to like Tetra Society of North America’s Facebook and follow our Instagram page and YouTube channel for updates throughout the competition. 

Contest is finished!

Description: This project is for a student, who is unable to use his left hand as a result of a brain tumour. This makes playing in music class very difficult because he is unable to put his fingers over all the holes of the recorder. A mechanism was designed so that when a button on the underside of the recorder was pushed by his right thumb a flap closed and sealed the first three holes. He was then able to play holes numbers four, five and six with the fingers on his right hand.
