The REFER team is calling on secondary arts and multi-media classes to create a trophy that will be awarded to the winners of the 5e edition of the twitterature contest.
The Rendez-vous des écoles francophones en network (REFER) has been organizing a international tweeting competition in primary and secondary classes throughout the Francophonie.
For the 5e edition of the REFER, a trophy will be offered to the winners of the competition. This trophy will be named a Aurise in honor of Monique Le Pailleur (@Aurise on Twitter). Madame Le Pailleur is a great lady who died in January 2014 who gave a lot on social networks by promoting several forms of collaborative writing events.
The trophy Aurise will serve to reward the creativity of young people and to promote the French language, its diversity and its richness through the Francophonie.
Creation of the trophy Aurise : the winners will receive a 500$ scholarship
- Targeted classes: secondary arts and multi-media
- Constraints on the achievement of the trophy: in a team of 2 students
The theme of REFER 2018 “school and learning: networks and links” revolves around collaboration and the co-construction of knowledge. This class project emphasizes the collaboration of the students because the realization of the trophy must be done as a team.
Each participating class must make a choice among the trophies made within the group and send its selection to the REFER committee. Among the achievements received, the committee will retain one that will become the trophy Aurise. The creators of the winning trophy will receive a scholarship of 500$.
The revelation of the winning trophy will be made on REFER day, March 22, 2018, live from the main foyer in Quebec.
Teachers interested in creating this trophy with their students can make their interest known to the REFER team.
The Twitter Literature Contest
The goal of the REFER tweeting competition is to have French-speaking classes from 5 to 18 years old produce a tweet related to the theme of the competition and resulting from educational work led by a teacher.
Each year, this competition honors the creativity of students from all Francophone linguistic communities. This fun and educational activity also aims to promote French culture and language.
Faithful to tradition, the REFER twitterature competition is linked to the activities organized as part of the French Language Week and the Francophonie by using the words proposed by Operation Tell me ten words.
