Are you ready for Germany, but stuck without a plan?
Turn it around and join the DAAD Germany poetry jam!
Whether you write, sing, rhyme or rap, it’s time to get your passion to giddy-yap!
So go stand in front of the cam and jam your way to Germany!

To compete in the contest, create a video, of the length of 1 minute maximum, illustrating in verse, rhyme, rap or song what studying in Germany means to you, and post it ontoYouTube.  

It’s not about following in the footsteps of Goethe and Schiller, but about letting your creative juices flow and sharing what you value about an opportunity to study in Germany.

Video may be in English or German or a comprehensible combination of both.

To meet the eligibility requirements you must be a student enrolled full-time in a degree program at a college or university in the U.S. or Canada.
