"Dis-moi dix mots" Contest 2015 [fr]

The French language and Francophonie Week is celebrated every year around the International Francophonie Day, March 20th, and is a major event for all lovers of the French language.

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..


How to participate
