The competition is for students in grades 4th-8th and is organized by the faculty adviser and student members of WSU Sigma Delta Pi, the National Hispanic Honor Society. Our goals are (1) to promote the Spanish language overall, as well as bilingual education; (2) to broaden the students’ vocabulary, and to improve and advance the skills associated with good spelling habits in Spanish; (3) to heighten the students’ literacy and public speaking skills; (4) to empower elementary and junior high students by providing opportunities to develop and showcase their academic and linguistic skills.

The competition is comprised of two categories: 1) Spanish Spelling contest; and 2) impromptu role play.
