On April 13, students from Mrs. Rogers American Sign Language classes at American Leadership Academy drove up to West High School in SLC where the annual State ASL Competition was held this year. This competition is an immersive experience where students leave their voice at the door and start using ASL as their main form of communication.

Students have the opportunity to compete against many other schools in Utah by creating art (De’ VIA) or creating ASL cinema. They may also compete by taking an: expressive test, receptive tests, Deaf culture, and history test, or fingerspelling test.

Marie Cornejo, Kanyon Gardener, Maddi Prince, and Rebecca Hansen were the representatives for ALA. All of these students competed in 2 events and were able to make it to the final round of the Deaf culture and history test.

When students were not competing they were playing ASL games with other students, watching ASL movies, or eating a catered lunch. Way to go ALA!
