The Arkansas Biliteracy Award

Congratulations to the 95 Arkansas high school students who received the first ever Arkansas Biliteracy Awards in May 2017!

The Fall 2017 application deadline has passed.

The next submission deadline will be in March 2018.

The Arkansas Biliteracy Award recognizes Arkansas high school students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages. The award has been the product of a collaboration between AFLTA (Arkansas Foreign Language Teachers Association), ARKTESOL (Arkansas Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages), K-12 teachers, university faculty, and members of the community.

The Arkansas Biliteracy Award encourages students to pursue biliteracy, honors the skills our students attain, and can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices.

The application for the award, as well as information about language proficiency requirements and testing, is available for download below. For more information contact Dr. Tina Howlett at

We look forward to receiving your application!
