CCDMD launches the 2020 Francojeu des cégeps competition

February 24, 2020

We are pleased to announce the 15th Francojeu des cégeps, which runs until March 31, 2020. Held in collaboration with the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF) as part of the Francofête, the competition is exclusively for the students, teaching and non-teaching staff of the Québec college network.

This year, Francojeu invites you to play with the following ten water-related words: aquarelle, à vau-l’eau, engloutir, fluide, mangrove, oasis, ondée, plouf, ruisseler, spitant. It is a playful and instructive way to celebrate the wealth of the French language.

People who want to take part in Francojeu 2020 are invited to go to francojeu.ccdmd.qc.ca until March 31, 2020.

Ten winners will share prizes worth over $1,500.* The jury will give a $500 cheque, from the OQLF, to the participant who submits the most inventive “illustrated word.” Creating this kind of image, like the ten illustrated Francojeu words on the competition poster, will be of particular interest to students who are partial to the visual arts.
