Middle and high school students, grades 8th-12th grade, who have qualified at one of three regional contests, are invited to compete and show off their German language skills and cultural understanding at the annual Texas State German Contest.
The Winterfest began sometime in the late 1960’s, followed by Sprachfest in 1976 and Houstonfest in 1980. As a culmination of the organization of area or regional contests, the Texas State German Contest was first held in the Spring of 1982 at Crockett High School in Austin.
