It’s Concours time!

Canadian Parents for French provincial Concours d’art oratoire are currently being held across Canada. The Quebec Concours will be taking place on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the Holiday Inn and Suites Pointe-Claire.

The Concours d’art oratoire is a French-speaking competition for secondary students throughout the country. Students write an original three to five minute speech on a topic of their choice, which they present in front of a panel of judges, their parents and their peers.

Cash and other prizes are awarded to winners in each category at the provincial level. Secondary V students who win their category advance to the National Concours, which will be held in Ottawa, Ontario on Saturday, May 30, 2015. There, they compete against provincial Concours winners from across Canada for a chance to win scholarships to the University of Ottawa and other Canadian universities (some in excess of $20,000).
