Today the 6th grade students received their award for the short stories contest in 5th and 6th grade. There was three prizes per class, and two additional students selected and commended for their excellent story.
6th grade winners were joined by the winners of the 5th grade classes for the picture.
More about then contest: In the auditorium, the 5th and 6th graders have two hours to write a short story on a given theme. The 7th graders define criteria and categories and organize a vote for the “best” ones. The contest may be linked with the “semaine de la francophonie.” The main goal is to create an opportunity for older students to read the short stories written by 5th and 6th graders, who can help younger students correct their mistakes and then choose an external jury to select the winners.
On the pictures below, the winners of the contest with Aline Bunod. The “Concours de Nouvelles” was coordinated this year by Aline Bunod and Bertrand Bago.
