Schools unable to attend the Texas State German Contest due to above declared inclement weather may remotely submit students’ entries.
In the event that the site for contest, ie. Texas State University, shuts down due to inclement weather, ALL teachers may submit their top 2 students/entries for any registered event acceptable under the inclement weather remote submissions.
