Texas State German Contest 2010
The final competition of a series of statewide German academic and cultural contests
Since 2006, the Department of Germanic Studies has hosted the Texas State German Contest, usually on the last Saturday in February. This contest brings together the best high school competitors from approximately 60 schools throughout the state. 1,000 students of German compete in a wide array of events from spelling, poetry reading and dramatic events to handicrafts, tests and musical performance. Approximately 80 high school teachers from all over the state accompany their students to Austin. These teachers, several dozen parents, and about 100 volunteers from the Department of Germanic Studies assist and serve as judges in the all-day competition.
