Brock-Niagara French Contest/Concours de français Brock-Niagara celebrates 35 years

Published on May 01 2013


The long-running Brock-Niagara French Contest/le Concours de français Brock-Niagara, created in 1978, provides about 150 local high school students with a chance to put their French language skills to the test.

At the annual event, Grade 11 and 12 students from 13 Niagara high schools take part in five different language activities in one of three language categories designed to test their know-how of the Romance language.

This year’s contest takes place Wednesday, May 8 at Brock University.

Faculty members from the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures at Brock, as well as representatives from the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) and the Niagara Catholic District School Board (DCDSB) organize the event.
