In the REFER (Rendez-vous des écoles francophones en network) program, students aged 5 to 17 from all over the French-speaking world are invited to participate in the “Tout une invention! ".

"The tweeting competition consists in producing an original literary work in the form of a tweet of 140 characters maximum, spaces and tags included, from a given theme", we can read on the Web page of the competition.

Students are also invited to participate collectively or individually, as part of a pedagogical work led by a teacher. The imposed theme, “A whole invention! », Is related to the list of words proposed by Dis-moi dix mots, within the framework of the Semaine de la langue française et de la Francophonie. Some of these words must also be used in the tweet submitted for the competition, according to the terms described in the rules. Only one tweet per student or team will be retained.

To participate, the teacher in charge must first register his class by completing the Registration Form, from January 20 to February 21, 2014. Then, the participating tweets must be published on www.twitter.com between February 3 and February 21, 2014, until 4 p.m. (Quebec time). Do not forget to include the official contest tag, which will be revealed on February 3!

The winners will be chosen by a multidisciplinary jury, made up of professionals from twitterature and education. The results will be announced on March 21, 2014 during the REFER and published on the website http://refer-edu.org.

Students must respect the following constraints according to their age group:

Students aged 5-7:
- choose a word among those proposed by Tell me ten words;
- compose at least one sentence with this word.

Students aged 8-12:
- choose a word among those proposed by Tell me ten words;
- compose at least one sentence with this word;
- use a minimum of 100 characters, excluding the tag.

Students aged 13-17:
- choose two words among those proposed by Tell me ten words;
- include these two words in the tweet;
- insert, in the tweet, one figure of speech among the following: alliteration, comparison, metaphor, antithesis or gradation;
- produce a tweet of exactly 140 characters (a “Twoosh”), including tags and spaces.

Adults who want to take up the challenge are of course also invited to do so, outside the competition. To your tweets!
