2013 marked Canadian Parents for French – Manitoba’s 30th annual Concours d’art oratoire provincial finals competition. Concours d’art oratoire is a French public speaking competition open to students in Grades 3 to 12 and includes the categories of Early Immersion, Late Immersion, Core French, Core Extended French, Français and Impromptu.

An estimated 8,000 students participated at the classroom, school, and school division levels of competition during the last few months. Over 120 provincial finalists from Grades 3 -12 competed for 17monetary prizes in 25 categories on Saturday.

Other prizes included $1,000 scholarships to USB for students placing 1st in the Grade 11/12 categories, $200 and a plaque from Société franco-manitobaine (SFM) to the winner of the Grade 11/12 Impromptu category, and a $25 Keener membership from Conseil jeunesse provincial (CJP) to the 1st place winners in all Grade 9-12 categories. The winners of the Grade 11/12 categories will represent Manitoba at the CPF National Finals in Ottawa on May 25, 2013.

"French second language education in our province continues to excel and increase in popularity. For example, and of note, is that enrolment in French Immersion is now the highest in the history of the program," said Catherine Davies, Executive Director of Canadian Parents for French - Manitoba.

"This is the 30th year of Concours d’art oratoire in Manitoba, and the 8,000 Manitoban participants demonstrate that students continue to embrace this opportunity to showcase their public speaking skills en français,” concluded Catherine Davies.

Morning and afternoon awards ceremonies were attended by federal and provincial government elected officials, as well as representatives from partner organizations including the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages, USB, SFM, AMDI (Association manitobaine des directrices et directeurs d’immersion française), and EFM (Éducatrices et éducateurs francophones du Manitoba).
