David Li, son of Hui and Olivia Li, recently earned an all-expense-paid summer study trip to the Federal Republic of Germany.

Li, a Los Alamos High School junior, was one of approximately 23,000 students who competed for the study strip by participating in a nationwide German testing program administered by the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG). Founded in 1926, the AATG is the only national organization representing German teachers at all levels of instruction.  It is dedicated to the advancement and improvement of the teaching of language, literature and culture of the German-speaking countries. Forty-four students were selected to receive these prestigious prizes. There are two awards: 39 regular study trips, lasting three and a half weeks and five senior study trips, which last a month.

The study trip awards have been made possible annually for 50 years by a grant from the Federal Republic of Germany through its embassy in Washington, D.C. Li and the other winners will travel to Germany this summer to participate in the study trip, including excursions of cultural and historic interest.
