French School of Austin (FSA) is excited to announce student results from the 85th Annual National French Contest. Among 17 participants, French School of Austin had 1 Platinum Medalist, 13 National Medalists, and 4 Honorable Mentions, making them the school with the highest number of National Medalists in the nation for the 6th year in a row. Nearly 70,000 students in all 50 states competed in the 2020 contest, and 651 became Medalists and National Laureates. President Anne Jensen extended her congratulations to the students who ranked nationally in The French National Contest: “They have shown a superior level of French language skills, cultural competence, and commitment to French. It is my hope that these students will continue their interest in French and pursue study and travel opportunities as future ambassadors of the French language and the many cultures it represents.”
