This year approximately 200 poems were submitted from High School and College level learners. The winning poems are selected by KSU's German Studies Majors, together with the full- and part-time faculty of KSU’s German program. This year's topic was "German in the USA," and prizes were sponsored by a Campus Weeks grant from the German Embassy in Washington D.C.
