On Wednesday, March 18, the UNCG German Program, with support of the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures and the Kohler Fund, hosts NC German Day 2015. The German Program is particularly pleased to serve as this year’s host since the event originated at UNCG fifteen years ago under the leadership of Associate Provost Dr. Penelope Pynes.

This year’s German Day theme is “Wir sind Helden – We are heroes!” As always, students participating in skit performances, poster design and the T-shirt contest must incorporate the theme into their work. The motto will also be part of an extemporaneous speaking prompt. The German Program expects to welcome over 450 high school students from more than 20 high schools across North Carolina together with their German teachers on campus. In addition to the competitions students will participate in a treasure hunt in order to explore the campus. So, on March 18, feel free to practice your German – participants will be wearing T-Shirts with the winning design! For more information, email s_rinner@uncg.edu
