Tarn-et-Garonne: CM1-CM2 students from Monteils win a first national prize

This Thursday, March 21, the winners of the national competition will be honored in the meeting room of the French Academy in Paris. Students from Monteils (Tarn-et-Garonne) are rewarded.

The students, that is to say 5 CM1 and 20 CM2, from Audrey Cousinié’s class, have just won the national competition “Tell me ten words”, an educational test organized by the Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the Ministry of ‘National Education’. The aim of the operation is to invite schoolchildren to produce a collective artistic and literary production, based on linguistic work, using ten words chosen every year.

For this edition, the word choice focused on the Olympic Games: adrenaline, bravery, escape, false start, mental, tie up, collective, offside, champion, go to oranges. From this, the children worked together on the specific topic and contextualized the project in the form of a 2’50 video, used about acro sports exercises. The audio support, in turn, was modeled on the story “The Letter to the Children of the Future”, in which we find in the stories of the schoolchildren the words imposed by the national jury. After the congratulations from the director of the school group and the jury members, it is Mayor Christophe Massaloup who speaks today: “I congratulate the students of Audrey Cousinié on their brilliant success. Thanks to your collective success, you are bringing the school group to the forefront of the national stage. We are proud of you!”

Two winners

Audrey Cousinié’s schoolchildren are not the only ones to take first place in the competition. The 21 CM2 students of Armelle Canet, from Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, accompany their colleagues from Monteille to the top step of the podium. For the competition, little Saint-Antoninois were the authors, composers and performers of a music video. The video was then filmed in Saint-Antonin with the help of Corentin Gilbert, digital advisor of the QRGA community of municipalities.

The awards ceremony

The ceremony, organized by the Institut de France, will take place on Thursday, March 21 from 10 a.m. in the meeting room of the Académie française, where four students from each class will participate. The choice for the selection of young ambassadors depended on the locations. Monteils opted for the random selection of the draw, while Saint-Antonin opted for the class representatives and substitutes. For the Paris episode, the accompanying people, apart from the eight students involved, are the following: for Monteils, the teacher Audrey Cousinié and the director of the leisure center Alexandra M’Bodj, for Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, teacher Armelle Canet and after-school animator Félix Ben Sadia.
