World Languages Day (WLD) is Wyoming’s state championship of world language study hosted by the Department of Modern & Classical Languages (MCL). MCL believes high school students should be given opportunities to excel in their talents, whether it is sports, music or world language learning. WLD provides an opportunity for friendly competition and allows students to learn from worldwide experts.

The theme for World Languages Day 2022 is community! 

Due to COVID-19, WLD 2022 will be an entirely virtual event. Students will be able to compete in language competitions in three mediums: one-take recordings (which encompass the typical live performance), edited video, and writing. There will be no registration fee.  WLD 2022 is open to Wyoming schools only.

We will offer live round-table sessions with our language faculty for juniors and seniors. We hope to have several sessions with the various languages throughout the week leading up to WLD. The deadline for registering for a live session is February 1st.

Consider Donating to WLD

WLD is a big event, averaging a cost of $15,000 to host (when there is student attendance during non pandemic years). The $20 registration fee for students does not cover the entire cost of the event. A gift of $25 will cover the additional cost for one student. Please consider this tax-deductible contribution today.

To our previous donors and supporters, thank you for making it happen!
