Félicitations à nos lauréats du Grand Concours 2021!

Le Grand Concours is a national competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French, and Walt Whitman’s French students have ranked nationally in the 86th annual event!  Students were evaluated for their written, oral, and listening comprehension skills in French. Despite the pandemic and all of the difficulties overcome in schools this past year, nearly 30,000 students in all 50 states competed in the 2021 event. French students in grades 9 - 12 at Whitman kept the tradition and excelled in all levels.

The percentile determines the award that each student will receive with these categories:
Platinum award:
The highest score in level/division (National rank 1)
Gold award:
students in 95th percentile
Silver award:
students in 90th or 85th percentile
Bronze award:
students in 80th or 75th percentile
Mention d'honneur award:
students in 70th, 65th, 60th, 55th, or 50th percentiles
