Ottawa – Canadian Parents for French (CPF) and the Embassy of France are
pleased to announce the Allons en France 2010 contest winners who have won
a 10-day trip to France.
The two winners out of three in Canada are Megan Renaud, Grade 12, and
Marissa Younan, Grade 11, from Holy Names Catholic High School.
"The Embassy of France wishes to thank all the students who took part in this
year's contest for their effort and for the quality of their work," said Olivier
Boasson, Cultural Counselor with the Embassy. "Through this contest our goal is
to foster an appreciation of the French language and to promote the teaching
of French. The Embassy is very pleased to contribute to the success of this
partnership with CPF by awarding five trips to France."
Individual students were asked to submit a piece of literature in French
illustrating the theme of "Tradition et innovation: le spectacle du quotidien". The
idea was to convey how technology is used as a tool to inform, connect and
communicate with others and can play a role in understanding cultural
diversity. Each submission was evaluated based on originality, French language
quality, and content development. To read the winning entries go to
