Félicitations à vous (congratulations) are in order for 19 Racine Unified French students who are headed for the state oral speaking forensics competition.

A total of 20 students competed April 9 and 10 at the Concours Oral French Speaking Forensics Competition at Carthage College, and 19 of them will move onto the state competition May 14 at Arrowhead High School in Hartland.

To qualify for the Concours event at Carthage, students had to prepare and memorize poetry, theater pieces, vocal music as well as recite pieces they’d never seen before. The icing on the weekend for Horlick included being awarded the American Association of Teachers of French Lillian Trottier Award for earning the highest number of “A” ratings during the competition.

Here are the students deserving of a “Bravo!” and “Brava!”
