Five German students from Bishop Lynch High School, representing six events, competed this past Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Texas State German Contest, held at Texas State University in San Marcos. This year approximately 1000 German students from middle and high schools throughout Texas competed in 36 events representing a wide range of interests, including competitions in academic knowledge, arts and crafts, conversational speaking, and declamation. To qualify for the state contest, students must have ranked in the top five in an event at one of the three regional contests that were held on Feb. 4th.
Bishop Lynch German students placed in the top ten in three events at State this year:
· 6th place Poetry Reading Level 4 – Ryan Malin
· 7th place Club Album – Claire Phillips
· 7th place Spelling Level 4 – Ryan Malin
Winterfest was first held in 1972, Sprachfest was added in 1976 and Houstonfest in 1980. The Texas State German Contest was introduced in 1982 to allow students to move to the
next level of competition. The three regional contests and state contest comprise the largest German contest system in the United States. More information on the Texas State German Contest can be found at www.texasstategermancontest.org.
