Congratulations to junior Mira Plante for her performance at Le Concours oratoire, a French speech contest hosted by the local chapter of Le Club Richelieu. Mira competed against other local students by writing and performing a speech entirely in French. This year's topic was, “Choose a Francophone writer from the 20th century that you admire and tell us why.” Mira delivered an articulate and introspective speech about how French poet Anne-Marie Albiach has influenced her life. She won a cash prize and the honor of being named one of the area’s top French orators!
