In December and January, German students all over the state took the AATG National German Exam. This year, twenty-one teachers at fifteen schools administered the level 2, 3, and 4 exam to 904 students. Thirty-six level 2 students were eligible to apply for a trip to Germany by scoring in the 90-percentile. Nineteen level 3 students were eligible as well as 6 level 4 students. 18 students applied for the Germany trip. Ohio was allowed to nominate 3 of these amazing students: Maddy Mayer, Ray Tao, and Janice Guo. Both Maddy and Ray will be in Germany for four weeks this summer! Congratulations to all these hard-working students and their super teachers!
