•To promote early bilingualism and/or multilingualism, and to recognize and appreciate the achievement of young children who have invested their time and effort in speaking or signing in at least one other world language.
•To provide an opportunity for young children to start developing global awareness and the linguistic skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century.
•To provide a platform for children to showcase their multilingual talents and cross-cultural competency.

Silas and Aria will receive a plaque and share a cash prize. A "hats off" also goes to Sugar Creek teacher, Lisette Venegas, who has helped bring digital literacy to the forefront of TWI classrooms at both Sugar Creek and Glacier Edge.
