Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair registration open
NORMAN, Okla. – Registration is open for the two-day Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair to be held April 2-3.
The fair is an annual competition held for Native students from throughout the state. In 2011, more than 600 students spoke 32 Native American languages during the fair at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.
Cherokee Nation Immersion School students have participated in the fair for several years, competing and winning different categories.
Students from preschool to high school are invited to participate. Participants demonstrate their skills through spoken language, songs, poster art, films, essays and presentations. The theme for poster art is “Language in My Heart.” Poetry writing and performance categories are new this year and are open to all ages.
Registration closes March 12 and can be done online at the ONAYLF website
