In honor of Italian Language Week, Fondazione Italia, in collaboration with the Italian Consulate General in Los Angeles, has launched the second annual Italian Language Kids Video Contest!
The Week of the Italian Language in the World is an event promoted yearly by the cultural and diplomatic network in the third week of October. It focuses on a theme that acts as the leitmotif of a vast cultural program to promote the diffusion of the Italian language. The 18th edition of the Week of the Italian Language in the World, scheduled to take place from 15 to 21 October 2018, will be dedicated to “Italian and the web, social networks for the Italian Language”.
Students in grades K-12 are asked to create a video in Italian that is a mini language lesson where they teach their audience about their favorite Italian word or phrase. The possibilities for kids to talk about what they love about the Italian language are limitless! Contestants may also create a video around this year’s theme, “Italian and the web, social networks for the Italian Language”.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the winners!
