The 2017 Francophone Festival
2017 FESTIVAL RESULTS are here. To see them, please open the link below.
Several years ago, The North Texas American Association of French Teachers began its annual Fête Française event, which allowed all high school students of French to compete against their peers in academic and non-academic events. The Fête has transformed itself into a Festival to celebrate Francophonie. Today our chapter invites you to join us at the Festival Francophone 2017 hosted at Dallas International School. Competition categories include poetry, prose, sight reading, drama, music, dance and art. Several events have been included to encourage students to learn more about francophone cultures—and simply to have fun in realizing that there are lots of students enthusiastic about learning French in North Texas and the state of Texas.

The Festival relies heavily on volunteers from the community to make each year’s competition possible. Judges work in shifts on Saturday morning, and/or Saturday afternoon. Judges are needed for beginner to advanced levels in all areas from academic to artistic. First-time judges will be provided with an orientation by the Festival Francophone judge coordinator prior to judging their first event. In addition, all judges are eligible for a certificate of professional growth & development or volunteer community service hours. Certificates will be available for the Festival Francophone (a template will be emailed to participating schools) afterwards.
Finally, while at the Festival Francophone, all judges are provided with complimentary coffee, water, snacks, and informal lunch or breakfast.
Judging is a great opportunity for networking and camaraderie with fellow French-speakers.
