Students from grades 4 to 12 participated at the 35th annual provincial French public-speaking event, Concours et festival d'art oratoire, organized by the Ontario branch of Canadian Parents for French (CPF).
 
On Saturday, May 44h, Canadian Parents for French (Ontario) welcomed over 300 students from 24 school boards and 11 independent schools from across Ontario to the provincial event at York University’s Glendon Campus in Toronto. Students presented an original speech or spontaneous presentation before a panel of officials recruited by the Ontario Modern Language Teachers' Association (OMLTA).
 
Students in grades 4 to 8 took part in a non-competitive festival at the event showcasing their learned French-language and persuasive public-speaking skills. Students in grades 9 to 12 participated in a competitive Concours in both the Traditional and Impromptu Divisions for cash prizes and partial scholarships to York University’s Glendon Campus and the University of Ottawa.
