The Public Speaking Competition, organized by Canadian Parents for French New Brunswick, offers French Second Language students from Grades 6 to 12 a chance to speak French and meet young people who share their enthusiasm for the French language. During their participation in the competition, students will have to make a speech in French that they have prepared in advance. In addition, the 12th-grade winners will have the chance to compete at the national level of this competition and also have a chance of winning bursaries and scholarships from the Université de Moncton and other universities across the country. This year, the competition will take place virtually.
