- There were no Awards Petit Déj Ceremonies in May 2018 or May 2019 -

- some schools, eg. L'étoile du Nord French Immersion School in St. Paul, Central HS St. Paul, and the International School, etc. held individual ceremonies -


There were:
693 Grand concours contest participants in Minnesota in 2019 with 104 platinum, gold, and silver winners at the secondary level.


On a survey, the majority of teachers prefer to receive travel/study vouchers of $500 as awards to two or three of their students rather than $1000 to one student.

Three students received the travel/study vouchers:
       - one from Minnetonka HS (teacher: Susan Campbell)

        - one from St. Paul Central HS (teacher: Maureen Peltier)

        - one to an independently registered student

        A tombola was held at Lake Country School.

        CONGRATULATIONS! FÉLICITATIONS!
