From March 23 to April 24, thousands of students from more than 70 French-language elementary schools in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, Ontario and Quebec (including a school in Nunavik) will participate in this unifying event.

The Recreation game is an educational tool that encourages school perseverance in addition to offering a new alternative to teachers across the country. “The National Reading Competition is a unifying event for the Canadian Francophonie and gives students the opportunity to discover and celebrate the French language while having fun,” says Pierre Renaud, founder of the Competition and creator of the game.

For a fifth consecutive year, the Competition is being held under the honorary presidency of the Honorable Jacques Demers, senator and former head coach of the Montreal Canadiens. “The playful approach of the Competition with the Recreation game motivates young people to learn to read and spell well. I cannot repeat it enough, young people are our future and it is more than important to provide them with effective and fun tools to persevere in school. "

The young competitors who take part in the Competition will participate in the elimination rounds of the game Recreation, a game in which the young people must read and spell label words to advance on the game board. After a week of semi-finals, the finals will take place in each school, after which prizes will be awarded to the finalists to recognize their efforts.

The founder and all the collaborators are proud of the efforts made by the pupils within the framework of the contest and wish them the best of experiences!

About the National Reading Competition
The National Reading Competition was held for the first time in 2007. An original idea by Pierre Renaud, it aims to stimulate learning to read through a playful approach and to encourage long-term school perseverance through mastery of this skill. To date, nearly 40,000 students have taken part in the event.

About the game Recreation
Récréation is an educational board game intended for students from the first cycle to the elementary school where the good reading and the correct spelling of the words to be learned allow the players to advance on the course of the game board. The concept was developed by Pierre Renaud, a policeman who wanted to motivate his son to read. The game is recommended by the Quebec Association of Elementary Teachers (AQEP) as well as by the Association des consommateurs du Québec. Mr. Renaud and the game's founding organization received the 2010 Quebec Citizen Business Award.
