German Day 2018!

The Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures at Penn State University invites middle school and high school German students to German Day 2018. It will be a fun-filled day of German language activities, including a poster and movie competition, a spelling bee, poetry recitation and a German trivia game. Students will also have the opportunity to practice their German (and earn prizes!), learn more about studying German at Penn State, visit a German language class, and get a tour of campus.

This year the competition starts early, with schools submitting candidates for the slogan/theme for our German Day T-shirts!

Our theme is “1918,” and can be related to any events and/or significant historical happenings from this year!
