About Le Grand Concours

The National French Contest/Le Grand Concours is an annual competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French.

Students  of French in grades 1-12, in all 50 states and abroad, take a written test and compete against students with similar educational background for prizes.   Grades 1-6 participate in the FLES Contest.  Grades 7-12 in the Secondary Contest.

Students enter via their French teacher.  All students are eligible -- home school parents or  private tutors can request  information on participation from the nearest Chapter Administrator.  Students of non-AATF members are also welcome to participate.  

Teachers contact local Chapter Contest Administrator for information on local deadlines and entry fees. 

Past copies of the Contest are available for purchase for review and practice purposes.  Audio scripts and scoring keys for past years are also available.
