Royal Oak High Schoolers did very well at this year's German Day.

On April 8, 2022, the Royal Oak High School 10th, 11th and 12th grade German students participated in the University of Michigan's annual German Day competition. This is a day where high school and middle school German students from around the state come together to celebrate learning German and compete in various events. This year's theme was Erzählkunst or Storytelling and Royal Oak German students created original comics, fanzines, skits, cooking shows, poems, flash fiction, podcasts, websites, music, and news broadcasts around this theme. Their creations were submitted to German Day and judged by University of Michigan professors and German students. Our students did very well and were awarded prizes in many categories.

Here is a list of our winners and some of their submissions:
