HS German Video Receives 10th Place in National Competition!


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.
