Please join us in congratulating ISTP's 8th Grade students Derrin W., Maia C., Elizabeth M., Cassandre C., Seena S., Chloe M., and Lev S. on having their self-created video, “Foreign Language News” place 2nd in the ACTFL video contest, in the middle school category.
Also, congratulations to ISTP 7th Grade students Matthew P., and Gavin T., on having their self-created video, “Become Bilingual” be an ACTFL finalist video.
ACTFL is a national student video contest to celebrate Discover Languages month, February 2012. This effort is part of the sustained Discover Languages public awareness campaign, which is designed to bring media attention to the critical need of all students to have the opportunity to learn a second language.
Students across the country, from elementary school through college, are encouraged to submit videos on how language learning has been important in their lives. The videos were judged for originality and creativity by a celebrity panel of judges.
