Canadian Parents for French-P.E.I. is recognizing seven students with its French Student Excellence Award.
Students are awarded points based on character, qualities of leadership, interest in becoming bilingual as well as scholastic ability. Distinction, whether in intellect or character or a combination of these, is the most essential requirement.
Awards were available for students enrolled in core French, in French immersion and in French language schools. Additional criteria include sharing the awards among schools and among French levels.
The winning students receive a paid registration to the Encounters with Canada Program. The students awarded prizes this year (in no particular order) are: Abby Craswell - Bluefield High School; Emma Huestis - Charlottetown Rural High School; Samantha Basso - Colonel Gray High School; Maria Ferguson - Montague Regional High School; Breanna Allen - Souris Regional High School; Jessica Howard - Westisle Composite; and Abby Christopher - Kensington Regional High School.
"This award is an excellent way to recognize students for the hard work they do in studying in French," says Brittany Jakubiec, president of CPF-P.E.I. "It also gives the students a practical way in which to use their French language skills as the program at encounters can be done in French or English."
