The Seal of Biliteracy was an initiative started by Californians Together in 2008 to acknowledge and award hardworking bilingual and multilingual students. In 2011, it officially became legislation in California, and now over 30 states nationwide have implemented a statewide Seal of Biliteracy. On May 30, 2015, Nevada became the 13th state to implement a legislated statewide Seal of Biliteracy.
