Welcome to the official site of the Virginia Organization of German Students!

About Us

The Virginia Organization of German Students (VOGS) was established in 1978 in order to promote interest in the German language and culture throughout the state of Virginia and its schools.

VOGS offers members the opportunity to meet, compete, and have fun in a number of activities and contests throughout the academic school year, including an annual convention and meeting at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg.

Yearly membership is open to all public and private schools that teach German in Virginia. Learn how to sign up by clicking the 'How to Join' tab above!
