Congratulations to Emma Schaefer and Ava Lowell from Shining Mountain Waldorf High School who placed 10th in the national “Step into German” contest organized by the Goethe-Institut. Students chose a song by German “Newcomer of the Year”, Joris, and produced a music video for it. Emma and Ava decided to sing “Herz Über Kopf”‘ themselves for the video. Voting for the videos was held online.They each received a German “Wundertüte”with a T-shirt, a book on German young people’s popular jargon for 2016, a breakfast cutting board and a CD of music by Joris.
