Spot the Germany.info Zeitgeist Bus — Win a Four-Week Trip to Germany

March 9, 2009

WASHINGTON, March 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Grab your camera, the Germany.info “Spot the Bus” contest is back! The theme this time is “Zeitgeist is German.” You can spot the bold new design–one bus is orange and one bus is bright green–until the end of June 2009, both on the streets of Washington, DC, and as “virtual buses” online. Will you be ready to snap a picture and enter to win?

The grand prize is a four-week trip to Germany for a German language course, generously sponsored by the Goethe-Institut Washington. The Second-place prize will be an iPod Shuffle for one winner each month. And, for the first time, every valid submission will win an instant gift, a cute WINNI-TWO keyboard brush made in Germany.

To enter the contest, simply submit your snapshot of the life-size version of any of the two buses or a screenshot of the “virtual bus” by using the upload form at www.Germany.info/Zeitgeist, where you can also learn more about what “Zeitgeist is German” is all about.

Did you know, for example, that American blue jeans were invented by a German immigrant, the German Bauhaus school of design signaled the advent of US cityscapes inspired by Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe, or that the MP3 technology was developed by German engineers?

And have you ever realized that you speak German when you tell your friend that your car is kaput, which ruins your plans to zigzag across the city to shop at the antique shops in search of kitschy collectibles?
