The painting competition, "Germany in my Mind" was part of the Goethe-Institut initiative Schools: Partners for the Future, which aims at building and developing a network of partner schools worldwide. 500 schools all over the world, of which about 40 will be from India, will be a part of this far-reaching project. Their teachers will be trained and offered refresher courses for teaching German as a Foreign Language. They and their students will have opportunities to visit Germany. The initiative also foresees providing support in the form of technical hardware, teaching materials, websites, platforms and interactive competitions to network the partner schools with each other.

The project took off in April 2008 and the first event in Bangalore was the Painting Competition: "Germany in my Mind", organised by GI/MMB in collaboration with Delhi Public School South Campus Bangalore: In all 127 children from 12 schools, including one from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, competed in two categories - Seniors (Std. 9 to 12) and Juniors (Std. 5 to 8). The paintings mirror the vision of young Indians about Germany and testify to a vast creative potential. The prize-winning paintings can also be viewed on our website.

May we request you to give wide publicity to this event, both in the general as well as the education and children's columns and depute your representative to review the exhibition and interview the prize-winners. We look forward to welcoming you at the Bhavan for the Inauguration on the 29th.

Thank you as always for your cooperation,

Sincerely yours,

Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan
