Concours d’art oratoire
Concours d’art oratoire is a French speaking competition for French second-language and first-language students.
Even though everything has changed due to COVID-19, Canadian Parents for French – Manitoba (CPF-MB) will still be providing Concours d’art oratoire. Concours provides a valuable experience, which builds useful life skills at many levels, and it complements Manitoba curricula.
Concours will be completely adapted to fit the current situation. Concours d’art oratoire will be held at the school level ONLY, and each competition will be limited to the classroom cohort. Consequently, there will be many final competitions occurring in each school, within each grades’ designated cohort. Classroom cohort competitions will be held at the convenience of each school and/or each teacher. At this level all participating students will receive a certificate, and 1st,2nd and 3rd place ribbons will be available to each participating cohort.
Divisional Final competitions will NOT be held this year. However, the Provincial Final will take place for grade 9-12 students only. The finals will consist of students submitting a pre-recorded virtual speech to the CPF-MB Branch Office.
The categories for the 2021 competition are as follows:
