The Manitoba German Language Contest provides students with the opportunity of receiving recognition for their competency in the German language. Students compete in reading, writing, listening, and speaking, and have the change to win one of many prizes.

Contests are underway throughout Manitoba. Students are working on their reading, writing, and listening skills. About 80 students will be invited to participate in the Interview portion of the contest on February 26, 2018.

Manitoba German Language Contest (MGLC) 2017
Thank you for another successful Contest! We had over 450 students participate in this years contest. On February 27, 2017, we invited 100 students from 13 different schools to participate in an interview and an award ceremony at Chief Peguis Junior High.
We were able to award 25 students with over $3000 in monetary prizes and will be sending two students on scholarship trips to Germany through the generous support of the PAD, the Goethe Institute, and the generous donors of MGLC. We are so very thankful for the continuous support that we are receiving.


We are pleased to announce that Annabella Cardozo from  River East Collegiate has won the Scholarship trip to Germany through the PAD and Hadessah Maendel from Fairholme Colony School has won the Senior B Scholarship trip to Germany through the Goethe Institute.
