Congratulations to all of the nominees on the excellence of their essays nominated for this semester's Kothe-Hildner prize competition for the best essay in German 232. It was a great set of essays, and a pleasure to read!
The winner of the $125 first prize is Andrew Cooper from Silvia Grzeskowiak's course on News and Media in the German-Speaking World, for "Gestohlen: Der tote Soldat."
There was a tie for second place, and so we are combining the second and third prize amounts ($50 and $25) in order to split them between the two second prize winners, so each person will receive $37.50. The two second prize winners are: Sarah Piper from Mary Gell's course "Germany Rocks," for "Beatles Briefe" and Emily Young from Silvia Grzeskowiak's course on News and Media in the German-Speaking World, for "Gestohlen: Tibetischer Bucheinband."
