Riverside Junior High Kids
German Academic Teams Have Success at Staatskongress

March 18, 2019

On February 16 at Ball State University, HSE German students competed at Staatskongress, the Academic and Cultural competition open to all German students in the state of Indiana. This year over 500 students were involved representing 27 schools.

Academic teams tested their German skills while students also participated in cultural competitions and workshops, enjoyed a banquet of German food and danced traditional German dances to the live music of the Jay Fox Band. Students were also able to practice their spoken German by talking with college students and earning Sprachgeld, which they redeemed at the Jahrmarkt for souvenirs and candy imported from Germany.

Hamilton Southeastern High School contributed the following officers to the Indiana Association of Students of German, the organization that sponsors Staatskongress:
IASG President 2018-20 Hayden Sizemore
IASG Representatives Morgan Albertson, Eric Gadberry and Katherine Kesler
