Dear Friends,

You and your students are cordially invited to NC-AATG’s annual German Day, to be held this year on Thursday, March 18, at Wake Forest University from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

*Contests*: All contests will have prizes for the best performance.

*Scheduling Restraints*: Each school may participate in all activities, though scheduling constraints will force you and your students to choose some specific activities for each student. Please see the tentative schedule to help you plan and make sure not to cross-schedule students! Of course, you are welcome to bring along students who are not competing to cheer on their classmates!

*Theme*: The motto of this year’s German Day is a tribute to the multicultural backgrounds of German’s many speakers: "Viele Menschen, eine Sprache." As always, students participating in skits, posters, and the t-shirt design contest must incorporate the theme into their work. The motto will also be part of the extemporaneous speaking prompt.

*Deadlines*: Registration forms are due no later than Monday, March 1, 2010. Receipt of all registrations will be acknowledged via email. Late registrations will not be accepted. Please mail your registration and fees to us in a timely fashion.

*Fees*: Required Registration = $4.00; optional t- shirt = $8.00; optional Lunch = $8.00. In other words, $20 gets students everything they need: t-shirt, lunch, and the registration fee. Teachers and judges who are AATG members get lunch free of charge and are not charged a registration fee. Teachers and judges who are not AATG members get lunch free of charge but are asked to pay an adult registration fee of $9. As with student t-shirts, adult t-shirts cost $8 a piece. (Go to the AATG website to become a member.)

We at Wake Forest hope to make German Day 2010 just as successful as it has been in years past. If you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact us! We look forward to a fun German Day at Wake Forest!

Best wishes,
Alyssa Howards
