Fifteen students of Hamilton Southeastern High School ranked nationally in the 84th annual event, according to Lisa Narug, National Director of Le Grand Concours.

The proud teachers of these students are Nathan Price and Lindsey Van Groningen. Le Grand Concours is a national competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French.  Students were evaluated for their written, oral and listening comprehension skills in French. More than 72,000 students in all 50 states competed in the 2019 event.
AATF President Anne Jensen indicated: As the president of AATF, I would like to extend my special congratulations to those students who ranked nationally in Le Grand Concours. They have shown a superior level of French language skills, cultural competence, and commitment to French. It is my hope that these students will continue their interest in French and pursue study and travel opportunities as future ambassadors of the French language and the many cultures it represents.   I would also like to congratulate the teachers who prepared nationally ranked students because without their dedication and hard work these students would not have attained their ranking.  Finally, I would like to express my appreciation to the parents who have supported and advocated for the French programs in their children’s schools.  Our Association is grateful to the dedication and hard work of everyone who shares our passion for the promotion of French.
