• The National French Contest/Le Grand Concours is an annual competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French.  We had 66 French students to participate this year. Several of them won high awards.  Students receive a ranking both in the state and nationally. Students who rank 1-10 in the nation receive a medal.  Gold is 95th percentile, Silver is 85-90th percentile, Bronze is 75-80th percentile.
