Le Grand Concours • National French Contest
The National French Contest is a wonderful way to bring recognition to your students and your French program!
The National French Contest/Le Grand Concours is an annual competition sponsored by the AATF.
Students of French in grades 1-12, in all 50 states and abroad, take a multiple-choice test
and compete against students with similar educational backgrounds for prizes of medals, certificates, and more.
Grades 1-6 participate in the FLES Contest. Grades 7-12 participate in the Secondary Contest, Levels 01-5.
In Connecticut, there is a statewide prize ceremony each year to celebrate students scoring in the top 10 in the country for levels 01-5.

If you are a CT public school teacher and plan to sign up for the online test, please ensure that you are in compliance with the CT Student Data Privacy Law by following these directions:
- For the online test, just order the quantity of tests you need for each level. Do not put student names on the order form. You will receive a list of generic names that are not identifiable (Student 12345, Student 22345, etc).
-When students take the test, they will use their auto-generated generic names, not their real names. If they do enter their actual names unintentionally, please contact Lisa Narug (firstname.lastname@example.org) for help.
- Please note that AATF National will not be collecting or housing any personal data of the students who are registered in this manner.
**If you require the Grand Concours as part of students' grades or the school curriculum, please sign up for the paper test.
