||The Opticians Association of America (OAA) announced the winners of the Great American Optician Video Contest last week at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the help of American Idol's Randy Jackson and a celebrity panel of judges, including our own Amy Schneider, co-founder and VP of Product Development.|
"As an optician, I was honored to represent the field that started my career and the thousands of opticians across the country as a celebrity judge," said Schneider. "While watching the video submissions, I was inspired to see the passion that was communicated about the important roles that every optician plays to bring sight, care, and love to their patients."
Contest Sponsor Transitions Optical provided a $3,500 cash prize for the first place winner, $2,000 for second place, and $1,000 for third. Watch the videos here:
