Calling all German, history and social studies teachers in the United States! Want to hold a fun contest in your classroom? Why not have your students participate in the 8th Annual German Information Center USA Essay Contest. Deadline is April 15, 2013.
There are two ways for students from three grade groupings (Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12) to participate:
(1) You can hold the contest in your own classroom and receive an Amazon.com e-certificate for the 1st place student. To collect the prize, you must submit the winning essay and the number of students who participated to the German Information Center USA at the German Embassy in Washington.
(2) You can submit several essays directly to the German Information Center USA, where they will be evaluated by GIC staff with prizes and certificates awarded to winners in all three grade groupings. All entries must be submitted electronically by April 15, 2013.
