As one of just 20 finalists in the Midwest, Lentz earned the honor from the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange because of his communication skills, academics and cultural curiosity. The program, which has an admission rate under 2%, awards a $10,000 scholarship.

The program is for motivated high school students who want to fully immerse themselves in German culture by living with a host family and attending a local high school.
