On Saturday, May 25, 2013, Canadian Parents for French (CPF) will host the eleventh annual public speaking competition, CPF National Concours d’art oratoire 2013, in Ottawa, Ontario. The grand prize for each of the first place winners is a $20,000 scholarship to the University of Ottawa, donated by the school.
The competition brings together senior high school students from across Canada who will deliver the speech that won them first prize at the school, regional, and/or provincial/territorial levels. Furthermore, second-place winners will take home a $5,000 scholarship prize and all other national participants will be granted an entrance scholarship of $2,000 to the University of Ottawa.
