National French Contest - Les Dernieres Nouvelles!

2016 Contest registration is now available
The on-line store to order materials for the 2016 Concours is not yet ready but we are beginning to take orders and will process manually. We will post a follow-up message once the on-line store is ready. If a teacher registers now, it is not necessary to register again in the on-line store when it is available.
