A multitude of schools sent in submissions from which IU instructors/professors selected finalists for the event based on their proficiency in German. Six schools were invited for the quality of their contributions, including Pike Central High School. After viewing and judging of the selected finalists’ videos, Pike Central placed 1st.  The PC team consisted of six students: Dakota Smith, Dylan Query, Hazel Uppencamp, Niabi Pickert, Nick Lane, and Nick Jansen. The storyline, script, and location photography were all planned and executed by the team to a large extent on their own time. All are in Mr. Krahl’s IU German 250 course. Pike Central placed 1st last year as well. Special thanks to Mick and Lisa Hetman for use of location facilities.
