Concours d’art oratoire is Canada’s largest annual French-language public-speaking competition involving over a 100,000 students across Canada every year, and thousands of dollars worth of prizes.

This event is organized by Canadian Parents for French (CPF), who has worked together with parents and school staff since 1983 to organize school, district and provincial-level competitions.

Concours is open to French Second Language (FSL) and Francophone students from grades five through twelve who are studying Core French, Integrated French, Intensive French, French immersion (Early or Late) or French First Language (CSAP), or studying in at a CAIS school (Canadian Association of Independent Schools).

Students will advance from their school and regional competitions to the provincial competition. For information on participating, please contact your teacher or the French Language Coordinator for your school board.
