National German Exam Awards
NGE Logo The National German Exam provides an excellent opportunity to highlight student success and promote the German program in your school. Recognizing students at special award ceremonies or school-wide honors programs are wonderful opportunities for positive publicity for German programs. AATG offers several ways to recognize and award students and publicize their achievements.

Presidential Honor Roll. All National German Exam Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award Winners will be honored online with a special commendation from the AATG President. These Awards are given to students who achieved the highest percentile rankings on the NGE. The Presidential Honor Roll includes the student winners' names, teacher names, and schools.

Study Trip Award. For over 50 years, the Federal Republic of Germany, through the Auswärtiges Amt and its Pädagogischer Austauschdienst, has provided the AATG/PAD Study Trip Awards, a 3-4 week trip to Germany in the summer following the Exam. Students attend classes at an academic high school, stay in homestays, and participate in various excursions to places of cultural significance. For more information, including application materials, visit the Study Trip Award page.

Chapter awards. Chapter Testing Chairs receive a number of prizes from AATG to distribute to students who participate in the NGE. In 2018, these prizes include medals distributed to students, as well as books and educational materials provided through generous donations by Klett Publishing House and the Austrian Cultural Forum.

Promoting achievement. Teachers can share the official Letter of Commendation with school and district administrators and add it to their professional dossier.

Free downloadable certificates. Recognize student achievement with free Downloadable Certificates. Gold, Silver, Bronze, Achievement, and Participation certificates are available in color for you to download and print. Just add the student’s name, level, percentile score, teacher name, and school name and print!
