This is an annual French public-speaking event for students from grades 4 through 12 studying French as a Second Language in Ontario schools. It is organized by the Ontario Modern Language Teachers' Association and Canadian Parents for French (Ontario). There are four categories- Core, Extended, Immersion and FSL Plus. Students in grades 9 through 12 participate in the competitive contest format for cash prizes. Winners from the grade 11/12 category move on to the National competition. The National Concours is held annually at the University of Ottawa. All national finalists receive a $2,000 entrance scholarship and the first-place winners from each category win a $20,000 scholarship ($5000 a year) to the University of Ottawa.
