In mid- December and early January 26 students enrolled in German Level 2,3 or 4 participated in the National German Exam. They were among the 22,000 students nationwide who participated in this academic contest.
I am proud to announce that Oconee County High School had:
5 GOLD Award Winners who scored in the TOP 10% in the Nation
6 SILVER Award Winners who scored better than 80 % of all participants
1 BRONZE Award Winner who scored higher than 70% of her peers and
8 Achievement Award Winners who scored better than the National Average.
The 5 students who earned a GOLD Award are now eligible to compete for a 4 week- all expenses paid Travel trip to Germany this summer. The award is sponsored by the AATG (Association of American Teachers of German) and the PAD (Pädagogische Austausch Dienst).
All students who earned a GOLD or SILVER award will be honored by the AATG- Georgia Chapter at an Awards Banquet at the Goethe Center in Atlanta in May.
