Each school is invited, but not required, to provide a booth as part of Kleinwien. Most booths must fit on six-foot round table. Please indicate whether your school has specific needs, such as electricity. (BYU will provide outdoor power to the first table. Please bring extra extension chords to connect any additional tables.) If any vehicles are used, please indicate this so that we can arrange for the proper campus access. We may be able to provide a separate room/area for activities such as videos, music, sing-along, or folk dancing instruction. The activity should involve using the German language to achieve a goal, after which each student’s “passport” will be stamped. Bring your own signs and materials.

Students may enter their names into a raffle for Germany-related prizes when they present their completed passports. To enter the raffle, students should go to the Passkontrolle booth.

Please note as well that as some of these booths will have items for sale, students who wish to purchase items will need to bring their own personal funds.
