And the winners are... !
This year, 15,000 students from all over the U.S. and Canada participated in the contest by watching our film "Beyond Autobahn" and answering the quiz question about German car culture. The correct answer to our question, "How many teens in Germany got their driver's license in 2010?" was 648,141!
Everyone that solved the quiz was automatically entered into a lottery for a chance to win our first prize: a Young Learners' Course in Germany in summer 2013. Without further ado, here is a list of schools that won the Award of Excellence 2012!
