If you know a truly outstanding German language teacher at your primary or secondary school – make sure that their dedication and excellence get the recognition they deserve!
The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany is pleased to invite nominations for the annual German Teacher Award, now in its 17th successful year. The winners will receive a personal prize and a certificate. The prizes will be presented at a special ceremony with Guest of Honour Neil MacGregor, former Director of the British Museum, at the “Sommerfest der Deutschen Sprache” in early summer 2020. The winners will be announced on the day of the ceremony.
On this occasion the Goethe-Institut’s Peter Boaks Prize, which recognises outstanding young(er) teachers of German, and two special prizes donated by the Austrian Cultural Forum and the Embassy of Switzerland will also be awarded.
Please download the leaflet below for detailed information on the selection criteria and the nomination process for the Award. Please note that headteachers must nominate the German teacher; unfortunately applications by German teachers submitted by themselves and applications submitted by pupils cannot be accepted.
The Embassy is delighted to work on this great initiative with its partners:
