ACTFL Global Engagement Initiative Submissions, Professional Award Nominations Now Open

ARLINGTON, VA — ACTFL Global Engagement Initiative submissions and Professional Award nominations are now open. The deadline to apply is May 28, 2016.

The ACTFL Awards Program recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of language education. Awards and nomination procedures are announced and candidates' names are solicited through announcements in ACTFL publications and through letters to ACTFL member organizations each year. The results of the selections are announced at the ACTFL Annual Meeting and in the January issue of The Language Educator.

The ACTFL Global Engagement Initiative recognizes outstanding community-engaged learning experiences within the world languages curriculum at all levels of instruction. Such initiatives may include a variety of experiences and should clearly show students engaged in cultural communities beyond the experience of simply travel abroad. Students of all ages and schools of all demographics can participate in a community of a different culture through activities such as service learning, project-based learning, internships, research projects, and virtual class exchanges.

ACTFL members who have actively engaged their students in using the language outside the classroom to participate in a global community may seek recognition for Global Engagement by filling out an application. All applications will be reviewed by a committee approved by the ACTFL Board of Directors.
