ERC - English Reading Contest at Mittelschule Scheßlitz


Jury with winner Viktoria


On Tuesday, December 10, 2019 eight brave students from year 8 took part in a contest to find the best English reader. They prepared an English text in their English lessons and showed their abilities in front of a jury of teachers and an audience of other students. After the first text the contestants read another text which they hadn’t seen before.


After that the jury - Mrs. Kleinlein-Wagner, Mrs. Bayer and Mr. Schönleber-Czech – faced a tough challenge: They had to decide which student won the contest! All students gave their best and it was hard to determine the best one. Finally, Viktoria from class 8b was elected as the reader with the coolest demeanor and best articulation.


Other participants in the contest were Ryan, Hannah, Lea, Kim and Tina from class 8a and Joél and Johannes from class 8b. Everyone did their best! Each student got an eraser or a keychain - Viktoria as the winner got a bar of chocolate extra.


Viktoria is going to represent our school at the English Reading contest in Bamberg. The ERC is going to take place in February 2020. The ERC winners from the Bamberg region are going to meet to find the best reader of Bamberg. The winner is going to represent Bamberg at the competition in Bayreuth. Good luck Viktoria!!!
