The Goethe-Institut is once again proud to present its annual Award of Excellence! Each year, the Award of Excellence contest provides young people in the United States and Canada with a contemporary and, above all, an authentic view of Germany by introducing them to a new topic. The short video, with English and French subtitles, is aimed at all students who have an interest in Germany, regardless of whether they’re studying German or not.
This year’s contest film, “Ich bin ein Berliner,” is all about Berlin’s youth culture. What’s at stake? Young Learner’s Courses in Germany, trips to Berlin for teachers, and of course the Award of Excellence itself for classes with outstanding performance!
The contest starts on September 2, 2013, on this web page. All US and Canadian students ages 10 to 18 are eligible to participate. Students can submit their answers online by either using their own e-mail addresses or an e-mail address organized by their teacher.
