The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

Cana­dian Par­ents for French - P.E.I. is rec­og­niz­ing seven stu­dents with its French Stu­dent Ex­cel­lence Award.

Stu­dents are awarded points based on char­ac­ter, qual­i­ties of lead­er­ship, in­ter­est in be­com­ing bilin­gual as well as scholas­tic abil­ity. Dis­tinc­tion, whether in in­tel­lect or char­ac­ter or a com­bi­na­tion of th­ese, is the most es­sen­tial re­quire­ment.

Awards were avail­able for stu­dents en­rolled in core French, in French im­mer­sion and in French lan­guage schools. Ad­di­tional cri­te­ria in­clude shar­ing the awards among schools and among French lev­els.

The win­ning stu­dents re­ceive a paid reg­is­tra­tion to the En­coun­ters with Canada Pro­gram. The stu­dents awarded prizes this year (in no par­tic­u­lar or­der) are: Abby Craswell - Blue­field High School; Emma Huestis - Char­lot­te­town Ru­ral High School; Sa­man­tha Basso - Colonel Gray High School; Maria Fer­gu­son - Mon­tague Re­gional High School; Bre­anna Allen - Souris Re­gional High School; Jes­sica Howard - Westisle Com­pos­ite; and Abby Christopher - Kens­ing­ton Re­gional High School.

“This award is an ex­cel­lent way to rec­og­nize stu­dents for the hard work they do in study­ing in French,” says Brit­tany Jaku­biec, pres­i­dent of CPF - P.E.I. “It also gives the stu­dents a prac­ti­cal way in which to use their French lan­guage skills as the pro­gram at en­coun­ters can be done in French or English.”
