Three students from Fayette County Public Schools earned recognition in the Kentucky World Language Association’s latest showcase, hosted March 25 by the University of Kentucky.
In Chinese, Sarah Poston of Bryan Station High School took first place in the novice high division. And in Spanish, Bryan Station Middle’s Victoria Lowe was the overall runner-up while Esmeralda Alvarez placed second in the heritage speaker category.
The KWLA showcase is a long-running annual event that allows students from across the state to demonstrate their language proficiency skills in all modes of communication. Each student presents their project to a judge and answers impromptu questions – all in the target language. Individuals’ scores are also based on presentational writing, an interpretive reading and listening assessment, and overall proficiency.
