    2021 Illinois High School Translation Competition
    Are you a high school student who studies Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, or Swedish and/or is a heritage speaker of one of these languages? If so, consider participating in the 2021 Illinois High School Translation Competition, organized by the European Union Center at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign! Participants will translate a B2/C1, 450-700-word text from one of the five languages featured in the competition (Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, and Swedish) into English. The texts, which range from literature to news articles, have been chosen by University of Illinois faculty and graduate students. 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 were enrolled in high school in Illinois during the 2020-21 academic year and/or will be enrolled in high school in the 2021-22 academic year 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 or near-native knowledge of the target languages and who have experience with translation. One winning entry will be chosen for each of the five target languages. The five winners of the Illinois High School Translation Competition 2021 will be given a prize and a certificate from the European Union Center at the University of Illinois, and the winners will be recognized at an award ceremony at the Italian Consulate in Chicago on November 4, 2021.

    To participate, please register here: https://forms.illinois.edu/sec/169703375. The deadline to send in submissions is Monday, September 20, 2021, so register early to have more time to work on your translation!
