The German Department is delighted to announce that Min Jie (JJ) Guo in Year 12 has won the Year 12 and Year 13 Oxford German Olympiad 2020 Category! The theme for entries into this category was ‘fahrerloser Verkehr’ (driverless cars).
JJ gave a fascinating presentation in German on the benefits and risks of driverless cars to the rest of the Year 12 German class earlier this year, which was recorded, and submitted to this prestigious, national competition. We received the comment from the organisers of the competition that “the judges were very impressed with your entry”, along with the news that JJ had won in this category.
Unfortunately, the prize-giving ceremony which usually takes place at the University of Oxford has been postponed to 2021, but JJ has received an electronic copy of her certificate. You can read the script of JJ’s presentation – in both English and German – here.
