Seal of Biliteracy
LTHS World Languages Department is pleased to offer the opportunity to achieve the Illinois State Seal of Biliteracy. The Illinois State Seal of Biliteracy provides recognition to high school students who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, listening, and writing in one or more languages in addition to English. In order for students to be considered candidates for the Seal of Biliteracy, they must meet the established criteria for the award. Once the criteria have been met, students will receive the Seal of Biliteracy on their transcript and on their high school diploma.Congratulations to the 2021 State Seal of Biliteracy Recipients:Polish / PolskiAngela BylinaKrystian ChlebekMalgorzata Gasienica-BednarzWilliam MakaIzabella PikulMatthew SevikDiana WalkoszJulia ZajaczkowskiSpanish / EspañolAleksa CulaficBrian EideCaitlyn GaffneyDeni GonzalezDiego Gonzalez-SolsonaErick LopezBeatriz MendozaPatricia OrnelasJake RuffBrianna ZukowskiState Commendation Toward Seal of BiliteracyFrench/FrançaisNatalie CarrollGerman/DeutscheBrennan DenlerMax PeckmanJapanese / 日本語Brian EideSpanish / EspañolAidan CallahanMarco MarraMiracle McClendonMia MooreJordan PaganoDelaney PavlikCanon RussellIsabel UnzuetaDiana WalkoszThis is an excellent award to have on one's transcript, as not only colleges look for biliteracy skills, but also future jobs as we continue to move towards a global society.
