Duolingo Competition! First Prize is 150 Lingots!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Maya, and I am the hostess of this competition. The rules are very simple. Let me explain:

How to Play

The goal of this competition is to complete 5 challenges. To prevent cheating, the challenges will be posted when the competition starts. The 5 challenges will include a variety of skills, so it is recommended that you meet the following requirements in order to participate:

~You have reached level 6 or higher in the language.

~You have completed about half of the tree.

~You can write sentences and understand the grammar of the language.

NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO MEET ALL OF THESE REQUIREMENTS IN ORDER TO PLAY. BUT IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DO, SINCE THE CHALLENGES WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR YOU IF YOU ARE JUST STARTING THE LANGUAGE.

Once you have completed the challenge, I will write in the number of the challenge next to your name (the challenges will be numbered; Challenge 1, Challenge 2, etc.)

Be one of the first five to complete the challenges, and you win!

Start & End

The competition will start on August 7th, around noon. The competition will end August 21, also around noon. All times are in Pacific Time Zone, or UTC-8:00. I live in California, so make sure not to confuse this time zone with another one. You do not have to be online when the challenges are posted.

Challenges

Challenge 1:

Gain 1,000 xp

Since something is wrong with my weekly leaderboard, I will instead take the total xp of the language you are playing for, and notify you when that number has increased by 1,000. If you are not learning the language you are playing for, please add it to your account. I will notify you if you need to do this. Some tips and rules:

~You can use immersion.

~Remember that I am only taking the xp for one language, so if you gain xp in another language, it will not be counted.

Challenge 2

Write a Short Story in the Language You Are Playing For

This story needs to be 2 paragraphs long, and each paragraph should be 5-8 sentences long. Some tips and rules:

~You can't submit a story that is copyrighted, or has already been translated.

~You can use a translator for individual words, but not for sentences or the entire paragraph.

~How difficult you make the story is up to you. Try to challenge yourself; this competition was made so you could improve, not to gain the most lingots.

Challenge 3

Translate 15 sentences into your language.

To save space on this post, I am not going to write the sentences here. Instead, I will be posting them in the comments down below. Since the sentences are not the same for all of the languages, there will be 5 different comments, which will be labeled by language. Please upvote all five of the comments so people can find them eaiser. Some tips and notes:

~You can use a translator for individual words, but not for entire sentences.

Challenge 4

Translate 15 sentences into English

This challenge is similar to Challenge 3, but instead of tranlating the sentences into your language, you will be translating the sentences into English. To save space, the Challenge 4 sentences will be on the Challenge 3 comments. Again, please upvote the comments so people can easily find them. Some tips and and notes:

~You can use a translator for individual words, but not for entire sentences.

Challenge 5

Reseach Your Language

You will need to research your language for this last part. Here are the topics to choose from:

~History

The history of your language. How it all started, events that influced the language, origins, etc.

~The Language Grammar

The grammar, rules, sentence structure, etc.

~Language Familes

Closely related languages, language family etc.

~Random Facts

Random, fun, intresting facts about your language.

~Statistics

How many native speakers there are, how many countries speak this language, how many people are currently learning it, etc.

You need to choose 3 of the 5 topics from above, and research them. You need to have at least 5 facts for each category. You can choose if you would like to write the facts in a paragraph, or just list them.

How to Sumbit the Challenges

Challenge 1:

I will be keeping track of the xp, so don't worry about that. I will notify you how much you have in the beginning, and I will tell you when you have completed the challenge. I will not be telling you every night how much you have left to go, so if you would like to know, please ask me and I will tell you.

Challenge 2:

You will create a new post and write your story in this post. An example here.

Please ask people to check the story for errors.

Challenge 3:

You will comment down below with the translations.

Challenge 4:

Edit your Challenge 3 comment and add the Challenge 4 sentences. There should only be one comment with your translations for both challenges.

Challenge 5:

Edit your Challenge 2 post and add the research. An example here.

Please tell me on my stream if you have completed a challenge. DON'T FORGET!

Always remember, that I made this competition to help you. Please try to challenge yourself. If you make a mistake, everything will be fine. I will not disqualify you, and you will learn from the mistake. If you are however, doing an extremely bad job (which I hope no one does), I will be talking with you. But this competition was not made for lingots; it was made to motivate you and help you learn. If you think the challenges are too much, you can quit whenver you want. When you have complete a challenge, I will write the challenge number next to your name under teams. Have fun, follow the rules, try your best! =D
