Grand Concours update:

April 2018

Update from National:

Results schedule
We are currently working on downloading data from the online test site and and just received the final scan data. Once all is complete, both types of data will be combined and rankings and percentiles will be computed. We anticipate results will be out, as usual, mid-April. As soon as results are out, we will begin preparing plaques and packaging up awards for shipment.

National will ship prizes as early as possible directly to the address you provided at purchase.

On-line test site
The test site has been updated so that students may log in and see their 2019 scores AND how their answers compared to correct answers. In addition, the 2019 Contest has been added to the review site so teachers can also see the 2019 Contest.

Le Grand Concours National French Contest

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 1-6 participate in the FLES Contest.  Grades 7-12 in the Secondary Contest.

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. 

Registration for the Spring 2019 test is complete.

Information for the spring 2020 test will be available in Fall 2019.
