Hosted by Appleby College in Oakville, the Ontario High School German Contest took place for the 47th time on 8 April 2018.
The Ontario High School German Contest celebrates the excellence of high school students studying German at high schools and Saturday schools across the province. Students are divided into four categories according to their level and background in the German language (beginner to heritage learner). The amazing prizes this year included trips to Germany, cash awards, gift cards, and piles of prizes donated by a range of contest supporters, including the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Goethe-Institut, and the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at the University of Toronto.
This year’s participating schools were: University of Toronto Schools (UTS), Appleby College, Delta S.S., Rockway Mennonite College, Friedrich-Schiller-Schule, Halton German School, Hamilton Germania Language School, and Concordia German Language School.
Our Department congratulates all the winners, and all the wonderful school programs. We look forward to seeing many contest alumni in our classes at the University of Toronto!
