Fees

There is a $5 fee per student* to participate in the language fair. Registration for competitions must be completed online on a first-come, first-served basis.

*Fees are not refundable

Number of Participants

Due to increasing numbers we ask that schools only bring motivated students to the language fair. Each school may register a total of 15 students. Almost all competitions have a limited number of entries. These limitations are listed in the competition’s category.

Because our numbers are growing, not everyone will be able to compete. Schools should have mini-competitions to determine who to send to the fair.

Students are limited to the Tanner Building and the Jesse Knight Building during the language fair.

Event Scheduling

Teachers can schedule students online by going to the registration page.

Students who are performing are required to arrive 5 minutes prior to performance time. If they do not arrive at the appointed time, they may perform at the end of the scheduled competition IF time permits. If there is no time remaining, late students forfeit their chance to participate in the performance portion of our competition.

Judging

Students are judged against a standard and not against each other. All judging decisions are final. The rubrics and rating scales used to score participants are available on the competition tab.

Time Limits

Time limits will be strictly observed. Competitors may be cut off if they go over time.

Disqualification

Students who do not follow event rules will be disqualified and may receive disciplinary action.

Awards/Certificates

Participants will receive a certificate in accordance to the scores received in their competition or presentation portion. All students who receive a superior rating will be recognized in the final awards ceremony.
