There is something for all students in this year’s LITM Competitions, whether they be second language learners or bilingual/background speakers. In 2018 we are running 2 competitions:
Conduct a conversation in the target language with a classmate and record it on video. Open to second language learners from P-12 in WA mainstream school programs. Language teachers can incorporate this task into their teaching/learning programs and make one school submission per age/language category.

Produce a bilingual text film or e-Book. Open to WA school aged students who are bilingual or have a background in a language other than English. Community language teachers, Aboriginal language teachers and EALD/ESL teachers can encourage their students to take part in this competition or incorporate into their teaching/learning programs in 2018.

We listened to your feedback from last year and have have changed our submission process so that it is easier and fully online. All you need to do is have your declaration forms scanned and your videos/ebooks ready when you fill out the online form.
These competitions are a wonderful way to reward and celebrate language learning. Winning students, parents and principals are invited to our Awards Event on 24 October and receive certificates and prizes which can then be presented again at your individual school assemblies.
