history (German Day from 1990 to present)
"Es war einmal ..."
Welcome to the German Day web site.
On this site you'll find a description of German Day, rules for the competitions and much more.
The Department of German, with support from the Department of Curriculum & Instruction, will host 500+ students from Wisconsin middle and high school German classes for the 21st Annual German Day competition on April 29, 2010 9:00am to 2:00pm in the Memorial Union.
This year's competition motto recognizes the cooperation between Dane County and its sister county in Germany, Landkreis Kassel: "Es war einmal … Deutsch kann märchenhaft sein" "Once upon a time … German can be like a fairytale."
Dane County's sister city, Kassel, is the home of Wilhelm and Jakob Grimm of Grimm's fairytale collection.
German Day will also feature many events such as posters, videos, recitations, skits and more in German around themes from fairytales.
