School Outreach Contest Winner
Majlinda Mulla-Everett

ATA’s School Outreach Program encourages members to share their stories in schools around the world—in person and virtually. By showing students the varied opportunities available to professional translators and interpreters, members not only      inspire them to consider a career path they may not have realized was a possibility, but also educate them as future clients. Plus, every School Outreach presentation offers members the chance to enter the School Outreach Contest with a chance to win a free registration to the ATA63 Annual Conference in Los Angeles (October 12-15, 2022)!

ATA’s School Outreach Contest
There’s no time like the present to start planning a School Outreach presentation and contest entry! Listen to Episode 53 of The ATA Podcast to learn more about the program and all the resources ATA has at the ready for putting together a presentation.
