NHAWLT runs a number of annual competitions for its members.

Additional contests related to world languages will be posted when received.


The New Hampshire Association of World Language Teachers now offers world language teachers in NH the opportunity to recognize their students’ outstanding achievement with the NHAWLT "Certificate of Academic Excellence".

With 5 different awards, the Annual NHAWLT Poster Competition is our most popular student event.  Our theme this year is "World Languages: #worldlanguages". Posters must be postmarked no later than Friday, March 27.  In keeping with 21st century skills, this year we are accepting both standard poster entries as well as digital entries.  All of the specifications can be found below.


Each year at the Conference banquet, NHAWLT honors an outstanding New Hampshire world language teacher or administrator.

NHAWLT’s recipient of the Teacher of Excellence also receives the “ED”ie* Award as guest at the “ED”ie banquet in June

This year’s Teacher of Excellence also receives a $200 honorarium.

Send your nominees to be considered to the NHAWLT Executive Board.

The honor is bestowed on a person who:
