AATSP Poster Contest

The AATSP sponsors the Poster Contest annually for students enrolled in Spanish or Portuguese in grades K—12. The Hawai‘i Chapter Contest is the first round of the AATSP Poster Contest, and allows students the opportunity to be celebrated on the Chapter level as well as the national level.


Teachers are encouraged to participate in the Contest to provide the opportunity to discuss with the students the benefits of learning another language. Students illustrate their ideas to demonstrate their understanding of the importance of and uses for learning new languages.


Prizes and certificates will be awarded to the winning posters in each category. Hawai‘i winners will also be entered into the national AATSP Poster Contest.


This year's theme is: Abre las puertas con el español --- Abra as portas com o português.
