On Feb. 11, French students participated in state-level competitions at West Lafayette High School. The competitions were open to any students enrolled in a French class who wanted to compete.

Andrea Yocum, chairperson of the world language department, said, “Competitions are open to all students who are interested in competing in topics like geography, vocabulary and singing in Indiana. We go every year and a lot of our students tend to enjoy it and do well.”

Remi Shirayanagi, French student and freshman, said she enjoyed participating in the geography and violin sections of the competition. She said, “Congrès was a pretty fun experience. I placed in most of my events and so did a lot of my friends. It’s a great way to meet new people, make new friends, and bond with your friends.”
