Students Participate in French Creative Writing Contest
Posted 06/08/2018 01:50PM

Five French American middle school students submitted original works of writing to a French-language, worldwide short story contest this year. Launched in 2006 by the International School of Houston in collaboration with the Mission Laïque Française (MLF), the short story contest is a pedagogical writing project that brings together students from schools that are a part of the MLF network around the world. The competition aims to develop communication skills and inspire creativity among students.

Three categories of student work were represented. Students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade created stories around a singular illustration; while 7th through 9th grade, and 10th through 12th grade students wrote stories inspired by quotes — that of Edmond Rostand: "By believing in flowers, you often give birth to them” and Erik Orsenna: "What does one know about the desert who only looks at a grain of sand?"

Congratulations to 6th grader Juliette on receiving an award for her submission, La Rue aux Ombrelles.

The following students also submitted original works to the contest:

Bravo, students!

"Research shows that younger children have a superior ability to learn a second language and that bilingual students tend to outperform their monolingual peers."
