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.

44th Annual Manitoba German Language Contest (MGLC)
Thank you for another successful Contest!  We had about 400 students participate in this years contest. On February 26, 2018, we invited 96 students from 13 different schools to participate in an interview and an award ceremony at Chief Peguis Junior High.
We were able to award 26 students with over $3000 in monetary prizes and will be sending one student on a scholarship trip to Germany through the generous support of the Goethe Institute and the generous donors of MGLC. We are so very thankful for the continuous support that we are receiving.
We want to thank Annabella Cardozo from River East Collegiate and Hadessah Maendel from Fairholme Colony School for speaking at the event and reporting in German on their scholarship trips through the PAD and Goethe institute.
