Provide Background Details and Rationale: Audrey Robinson, who will be a sophomore at Park Hill South High School, earned a spot in a competitive study-abroad program for a full school year, which the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag sponsor and the U.S. State Department oversees.

Robinson earned the honor from the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange because of her communication skills, academics and cultural curiosity. The program, which has an admission rate less than 2%, awards a $15,000 scholarship.

The program will allow Robinson to fully immerse herself in German culture by living with a host family and attending a local high school.
