Affiche ta Franco – Twitter Contest

« AFFICHE TA FRANCO » CPF Twitter Contest | Hashtag / mot-dièse #FrancoCPF2016 !

To celebrate the Journée internationale de la francophonie (March 20, 2016), Canadian Parents for French are inviting students across Canada to post and share their “Frenchness”.

Every year Canadians take part in various activities to practice using French and to recognize the rich cultural history of Canada’s Francophone communities. During the month of March CPF is launching the « Affiche ta Franco »Twitter campaign to celebrate and promote the French language as well as encourage students to engage in, document and share their online support for French.

The campaign, formatted as a contest, will target elementary and high school aged youth. For each day in March an activity challenge tweet will encourage students to participate by sharing a picture or words that relate to the topic of the day around French language and culture in Canada. Participant responses, using the contest hashtag (#FrancoCPF2016), will be entered in to win weekly prizes ranging from gift certificates to bursary opportunities.

As supporter of French, we hope that you will be able to spread the word about this campaign and bring attention to a day that celebrates Canada’s great pride in its linguistic and cultural duality.
