Since 2009/10 EDUCULT and "Wirtschaft für Integration" organise the multilingual rhetoric contest "SAG'S MULTI!". Children and young people from the 8th school grade are invited to register and to take a speech in German and a second language.

The competition is split into three categories according to the school grades. Each participant has to present a speech switching between the first or foreign language and German. They have to convince the jury of their language skills. At least one member of the jury is a native speaker of the first language. The contest is divided into three stages: pre-selections, regional competition and final.

 

The prizes for the top 15 are a one-week travel abroad.

During the first competition in 2009/10 over 100 children and young people presented their skills. In the second year 2010/11 more than 250 participants registered and the year after over 300 applicants were counted. During the sixth competition over 540 talented young people were part of "SAG'S MULTI!".
