Goethe-Institut’s Award of Excellence is an annual contest dating back to 1991. Every year a short video portrays some aspect of German life and students complete a quiz on the video. As part of this year’s Wunderbar Together campaign the 2018 Award of Excellence will focus specifically on the German-American relationship and consist of two phases. Phase one is an online competition taking place in Mexico, Canada, and the United States. After watching the video, students will answer a number of questions on this year’s topic „robotics and innovation. The best students from each of the three countries will compete to win a trip to Germany. There they will have the chance to take a language course and immerse themselves in German culture for the summer.
