Greetings language teachers and school administrators! This year’s World Languages Day at the University of Wyoming will consist of separate competitions for each language at three competition levels- Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. Teachers should register their students for the appropriate level. Participants can compete in the following categories: singing, poetry recitation, drama, cultural presentation or video. Each presentation should be no more than five minutes in length, and may be in Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, Latin or Greek.
For elementary level learners, a poster contest will be held which will be judged by a body of peers. Posters should convey an enthusiastic and organized display of a specific culture or geography.
Language students interested in other languages will have the opportunity to explore and participate in interesting demonstrations of Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Greek, and Latin.
$10 per person — Fees for individuals may be combined and submitted in one payment.
