The 2009 ATA School Outreach Award went to Margarita Griggs, a translator and interpreter in Reno, Nevada. The winning photo shows Margarita in an ESL class surrounded by students with roots in Thailand, China, Korea, the Philippines, India, Mexico, and Honduras. “As a closing exercise, I asked the students which word best described what they had learned: they chose connect, and then translated the word into the language of their country of origin.”
