Learning a language isn’t something you do on your own – it’s about speaking and sharing with others! To get the conversation started, we teamed up with our friends at 7000 Languages for the In Your Words Video Challenge (part of the 10-year anniversary celebration of our language revitalization program)!
Thank you to everyone who recorded and posted a short video sharing your favorite word or phrase in one of the Doyon region languages. Congratulations to the creators of the top three videos with the highest engagement:
- 1st prize – $100 gift card to Collective 49: Shondiin Mayo
- 2nd prize – $50 gift card to Collective 49: Flo-Jo Grant
- 3rd prize – $25 gift card to Collective 49: Mildred Allen
We also invite you to watch our In Your Words Video Challenge showcase, which premiered on February 21, International Mother Language Day!
Keep an eye on our website and social for future video challenge announcements and other ways to get involved in language revitalization efforts!
