Call for nominations

Each year at the annual meeting of the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages, the Walton Award is presented to an individual whose career has been distinguished by selfless service and noteworthy contributions to the fostering of less commonly taught language initiatives. Named after the late A. Ronald Walton whose tireless efforts on behalf of less commonly taught languages are remembered fondly by all who knew him, the Walton award will be presented at the NCOLCTL annual meeting next year in Chicago, Illinois on April 25-28, 2013.
