German Students excel at AATG Georgia Awards!
South Forsyth had eighty-five students (levels 2 and higher) take the National German Exam in January. When the results came in, fifty-two of them won an award! The exam compares student scores from more than 25,000 participants nationwide and awards gold medals for scores in the 99th-90th percentile, silver medals (89th-80th percentile), bronze medals (79th-70th percentile), and achievement awards (69th-50th percentile). https://www.aatg.org/page/NGE
Our students earned 16 gold medals, 8 silver medals, 7 bronze medals, and 21 achievement awards. Gold and silver medal winners were honored last Sunday at the AATG-Georgia Award Ceremony at Emory University.
During the ceremony, Allison Kunz was honored as the 2019 Langenscheidt Award recipient and Samantha Baker (Class of 2016) received the AATG-Georgia College Student of the Year Award. Ayonica Bhattacharya was named AATG-Georgia Student of the Year, an award that includes a three-week, all-expense paid study trip to Germany this June.
