ANNOUNCEMENTS

December 13, 2016

 As this year’s chair of Awards for KATG, I invite you to calendar the following dates:

Rhonda Westerhaus  [email protected]

 

December 1 2016 - February 1 2017

Be sure to sign up for National German Exams.  You should have gotten an email from AATG.  ( I have students in community college who took the German II exam and felt good about it. )

 

Mid-end February 2017 (when the work really starts!)

-   Expect  tabulated NGE exam results for all of Kansas via email from both Quia (responsible for compiling statistical info) and AATG.  I will review information and compile a list of students who achieved Goldurkunde (90% percentile or higher) making them eligible for a summer stipend should they also meet these other requirements: have a min. B average,  are at least 15 years old by June 1, 2017, are either US citizens or permanent residents, do not live in a household where regular conversation is in German, must not have visited a German-speaking country for more than two consecutive weeks since the age of six.

 

 Invite/encourage eligible students to submit an application for a AATG-PAD study trip award I (non-seniors) or II (seniors only) by the deadline (early March - you will receive info about this via email)

Interviews with KATG committee will take place at Schülerkongress (SK), Saturday, March 4th, 2017,  and they will be contacted with suggested times. The application must be submitted to AATG directly via  https://aatg.site-ym.com/?NGEStudyTripApp

 

Early March

- Students submit applications for AATG-PAD study trip awards I and II by early March deadline (last year it was March 4) and prepare to be interviewed at SK

-As Testing/awards chair, I will receive an email from AATG that notifies about/confirms the KS applicants for both awards. If there are no applicants, then no need for interviews at SK. If there is even one applicant, you will hold the interview(s) at SK, Saturday, March 4, 2017 at KU.

 

Mid/late March

- Submit nominations to AATG Study Trip as well as Kansas Outstanding Teacher by nomination deadline!

( More information to come)!

 

Early-mid April

- Nominees and testing/awards chair receive notification of Study Trip Awardees around April 10.

 Congratulatory emails to nominated students, regardless of outcome are welcome.

 

September

 - KATG Outstanding Teacher Award is presented  at Deutsches Wochenende (AATG president must sign the certificate)

- Prepare testing/awards report for KATG business meeting - review previous KATG meeting minutes for suggestions for report
