Announcing / Lancement du Concours Virtuel

Français à la suite Announcing Concours virtuel: Ensemble à distance Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have had to cancel the 2020 Provincial Concours d’art oratoire.
In lieu of the traditional Concours, today CPF Ontario, with a number of partners, is launching Concours virtuel — Ensemble à distance,
Ton expérience face au virus.
We invite students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 across Canada to record and virtually post 1-3 minute videos, en français, sharing how they are spending their time while schools are closed and events are cancelled.  While this is an incredibly serious public health moment, as we’ve seen from towns in Italy and Spain, there is power in sharing the experience together – to help raise each others’ spirits and remind each other that we’re in this together. Ensemble à distance.

Cash prizes total over $10,000 for students in Grades 6 – 12 who place in the top three in each category!

All cash prizes will be matched with a financial donation to a registered charity of the student’s choice. 

For each submission made for students in Kindergarten through Grade 5, we will make a $10 contribution to Food Banks Canada.

In addition, each submission will be entered into a random draw for two (2) roundtrip tickets anywhere in Canada with Air Canada!  Students under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Deadline to submit videos through our website is May 2nd, 2020.
