The award created to make sure teachers of French get the recognition they deserve!


Every year, two teachers of French (one in primary and one in secondary school) will be selected for their significant and committed contribution to French language education in their school and community.

The winner will be selected by a national jury which will pay attention to:

  • the participants’ record of successful teaching at a school, including innovative language teaching and cross curricular activities,
  • the participants’ successful introduction of French teaching at a school (e.g., first foreign language or new language),
  • the participants’ initiatives to promote good progress and love of learning French.


Teachers can apply for themselves or can apply for their colleagues.

Nominees will be announced at the end of November on the French teachers’ day.
