French students prepare for Congres

The annual Congres French competition is two weeks away and participants are making their last preparations.

“We’re not necessarily scrambling to be ready, but we’re just a bit slower this year,” sophomore Brianna Silvestre said.

The participants leave March 7 for the Orlando competition, which consists of various events including reading comprehension, speaking and poetry recitation.

As a part of another event, sophomore Sarah Tanke is creating a scrapbook that captures the projects and lessons of French class.

“She’s been compiling pages for the scrapbook and I know it will look really great when its finished,” Silvestre said.
