"Dis-moi dix mots" Contest 2015 [fr]
As such, «Dis-moi dix mots» is an annual worldwide contest created to celebrate the richness and vitality of the French language. The contest invites students to express themselves through a series of ten words. These words are chosen every year by a number of our francophone partners: France, Belgium, Quebec, Switzerland, and the International Organization of la Francophonie (constituted of 77 states and governments from around the world).
In the spring of 2015, the French Cultural Department in Miami will hold a local video contest for Middle and High School students that are learning French as a foreign language in Florida. The video can be created by an individual student or as a class project. Prizes will be awarded to the student or to the school to be used in the classroom or campus..
Have a student, group of students or class create a short 1-2 minute video, in French, using the ten words of the 2015 "Dis-moi dix mots" contest and submit it by January 31, 2015. The video must tell a story that illustrates how words and people travel and mix. The video may feature live people, stills, animation or any medium that best conveys their message.
These words are : amalgame, bravo, cibler, grigri, inuit, kermesse, kitsch, serendipité, wiki, zénitude.
Votes will be tallied in order to select the most "liked" videos and a People’s Choice Award will be given. In addition, a jury of professionals (working in Media, French language, and/or Education) will select the 1st and 2nd prize winners.
Prizes will be awarded in two categories: middle school and high school. Each category will have a People’s Choice Award, a 1st prize and a 2nd prize. Winners will be contacted in the Spring of 2015 and all participants will be invited to a public event that will take place in Miami on March 19th, during school hours.
