University of Illinois High School Translation Competition 23 – application deadline
Sunday, October 15, 2023
Are you a high school student who studies Greek and/or is a heritage speaker of Greek? If so, consider participating in the third annual Illinois High School Translation Competition, organized by the European Union Center at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign! Participants in the Greek-English division will translate a 565-word contemporary literary text from Greek into English. This competition aims to promote the study of Less Commonly Taught Languages and to provide high school students with an opportunity to get hands-on experience in translation.
All students who are enrolled in a high school in the state of Illinois are eligible to participate. Home-schooled students who reside in Illinois are also eligible to participate. The competition will be judged by university faculty and instructors who have native knowledge of the target languages and who have experience with translation. For each language division there will be one winner and up to two honorable mentions, up to the discretion of the judges. Winners and honorable mentions will receive a prize and a certificate, and they will be recognized at an award ceremony in Chicago in December 2023. For last year’s results, please see here.
