Spanish skills earn Country Day junior national award

Each year, a select 12 students from across the nation are chosen to receive the Junior Travel Award.

Because of his achievement on the National Spanish Examination, Robert Vann, a junior at Charlotte Country Day School, has won the 2012 Junior Travel Award for his excellent demonstration of skills in the Spanish language.

The national award is valued at more than $3,000. A small group of students become eligible for it by earning a high score on the National Spanish Examination. Select students then submit samples of their written and oral work in Spanish to a selection committee.

As part of the award, Vann will travel to Mexico in July with the 11 other winners.
