Dearest FLAG Teachers (and students),
Out of an abundance of caution along with the travel restrictions placed on many of our schools and counties, I regret to inform you that the FLAG Board has concluded the best course of action is to cancel the 2020 FLAG Spoken Language Contest due to the concerns of community spread of COVID-19.
I want to recognize all the hard work that students and teachers have put into preparing for this event and share in their disappointment in the cancellation. This decision was made after consultation with our contacts in various counties as well as friends at Emory University and the CDC. The FLAG Board wants this event to be positive for all.
The FLAG Board will be monitoring health recommendations for the FLES contest in April. Be on the lookout for information, rubrics, guidelines and awards for future contests. I am also planning to host a free teacher workshop in Fall 2020 to work on the format of the contest.
I will be processing refunds as soon as possible. I would like to ask for your patience with this process.
I hope everyone understands how difficult this decision has been for us. Please take necessary measures in order to keep yourselves and your students safe during this difficult time.
