2023 German Language Essay Competition is now open


Dear Students, Teachers and Principals

The Irish Austrian Society announce the 2023 German Language Essay competition now open.

In 1997, Dr. Otto Glaser, the President of the Irish Austrian Society at the time, had the desire to support young Irish students learn the German language. Having been educated in Ireland himself as a child, he was looking for a way to give back and foster education of his native language. So he founded the German Language Essay competition, which has been running every year since. 

In 2022 the Irish Austrian Society celebrated the competition's 25 year anniversary. With this new iteration we open a new chapter and invite your school to again participate in this competition, which is now open.

Please see links below for the invitation letter for students and teachers.
