University of Georgia in Athens received the 2016 France on Campus Award!
The France on Campus Award is intended to help student organizations eager to launch or continue a major France-related project on campus by providing a unique package of funding, mentoring and networking. With this support, awardees will expose new audiences to France and French culture on their campus and beyond.
Following a call for applications from September 28th until November 6th 2016, 10 projects showcasing various aspects of French culture in the fields of Technology, Film, Food, Music or Performance were selected.
The project University of Georgia, Athens, “Pourquoi pas? Inspiring Students to Be There Best” was distinguised by the selection Committe!
The aim of this project is "using the composition and production of an original hip-hop song in French to give young high school students from Clark Central High School a purpose to stay in school and an interest to learn French."
The Cultural Services of the French Consulate in Atlanta had the chance to meet with the students involved in this very inspiring project! We are very exciting and we will inform you regularly on the outcomes!
