A Poetry Contest for the Young Francophiles of the West Coast
There’s still time to submit a poem for the French Heritage Society’s first ever ‘Concours de Poésie 2023’!
The Northern California Chapter of the French Heritage Society has launched a poetry contest for French, Francophone and Francophile students of the West Coast of the United States. For its first edition, the contest is open to students from preschool, elementary, middle, and high school, and their equivalent levels of French sections and classes within American institutions. Young poets can submit their French poems – in verse or prose – until April 30th 2023.
Students following French classes in the states of North and South California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and Pacific islands under American jurisdiction, Guam and Samoa, as well as Polynesia, Wallis and Futuna can take part.
Registration and participation are free, and several prizes will be awarded to students, as well as to their French classes and teachers, for taking part in the contest. There will be several prizes for each category! A prize ceremony will take place in May in San Francisco (with the possibility of a video conference if needed).
