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.
