NEWS RELEASE FROM MISSOURI SOUTHERN STATE UNIVERSITY

Joplin, MO (SNS) – Approximately 1,100 students from 40 different schools around the Four State Area will participate in the 40th annual Foreign Language Field Day on Tuesday, April 8, at Missouri Southern State University.

Students will compete in French, German and Spanish competition categories that include Culture Bowl, Poetry Reading, Geography, Posters, Skits, Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension.

Check-in will begin at 8 a.m. in the lobby of Taylor Performing Arts Center. Competitions will be held throughout the day in Billingsly Student Center, Webster Hall, the Criminal Justice building and other campus locations. French, German and Latin dance lessons, trivia and other non-competitive activities will be offered from 8:40 a.m. to noon.

Recipients of Missouri Southern’s Foreign Language Performance Award will serve as staff members for the event, and will be available to assist participants at the different locations.

Culture Bowl finals will be held at 1:15 p.m. in Taylor Performing Arts Center, with trophy presentations to follow.

Dr. James Kilpatrick, coordinator of Foreign Language Field Day, said that the event serves not only to encourage students to enjoy learning about foreign languages and cultures, but also to introduce them to what Missouri Southern has to offer.

“We’ll have schools here from Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and even a school in Arkansas. It really involves the Four States,” he said. “When they come to this program, they become interested in the campus.”
