My Students

I work in an outstanding school with highly motivated students in Memphis, TN. We are a public school where students have to maintain high academic standards, display integrity, learn to become a community, and become academic leaders who provide service to others.

Ours is a small Title I school.

I love the enthusiasm and goal-driven nature of these students. They take opportunities to grow seriously and keep me motivated as an educator to keep finding new goals for us to pursue together.

My Project

I would like to provide this opportunity for all my students who are currently enrolled in French. Participation in the National French Contest takes place in the Spring each year and registration must be completed before the end of January.

Last year only 8 of our students were able to afford registration to participate in the National French Contest, but we had 4 of them rank in the top 20!

The National French Contest/Le Grand Concours is an annual competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French.

Students of French in grades 1-12, in all 50 states and abroad, take a written test and compete against students with similar educational background for prizes. Grades 7-12 participate in the Secondary Contest which is separated by level.

Students enter via their French teacher. All students are eligible -- home school parents or private tutors can request information on participation from the nearest Chapter Administrator. Students of non-AATF members are also welcome to participate but at a higher fee.

There are two categories of awards: Chapter and National. Chapters offer prizes to those students who are among the top percentiles at the Chapter level for each level and division. National prizes are subsidized out of the fees paid by each entrant. National Prizes include Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze medals and Honorable Mention certificates. Participation and solid performance are often seen as an excellent indicator of student commitment and ability to succeed in college and are an excellent addition to student transcripts.
