Writing a story with the popular youth author Bryan Perro, the "father" of Amos Daragon, or with another Canadian author, this is the project proposed by the Canadian Association for French Language Education (ACELF).

Indeed, as part of the competition Collective stories launched yesterday, elementary and high school students can pursue stories whose introductions were written by Bryan perro, Jean Fahmy, Martine Noël-Maw and Diane Carmel Leger. The groups only have to post their text on the ACELF website. Later, they can read the different parts written by other young people and continue with them since the competition is divided into three stages of writing.

Participating groups have a chance to win Canadian-authored book sets valued at 250 $. In addition, two grand prizes will also be awarded and the winners will receive a visit from an author for a workshop-conference designed for them.

In view of the Semaine nationale de la francophonie which will take place in March, the ACELF is also offering two other contests. The first, Early childhood books, is aimed in particular at kindergarten teachers. The young people have to produce a small book and send it in electronic format. The winning class will win a library of children's books worth 500 $.

The second, Draw a portrait of my Francophonie, is a photo competition for young people aged 7 to 20. An iPad will be drawn.

The coolest school trip in Canada

In addition, Parks Canada is organizing for all Secondary II students a contest with which they could win a four-day trip with their classmates to Banff National Park including air travel. To participate, each class must prepare a video of no more than three minutes on one of Parks Canada's 213 national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas. The section for teachers also offers educational resources.
