French Festivities Earn Organization an Award


Truman’s chapter of Pi Delta Phi, the National French Honors Society, has been awarded the France on Campus Award for the organization’s plan to implement a week of activities to celebrate the French language.

The award is sponsored by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States. PDP is one of 10 selected winners of the contest, and by winning they will gain the following support and recognition: mentorship support from a GoFundMe representative and a cultural attaché from the Consulate General of France; promotional and networking support from Cultural Services during project development and implementation phases; an award certificate signed by the ambassador of France to the United States following the completion of the project; and invitations to selected events organized by the French Embassy and/or consulates for one year.

PDP plans to host a short-film contest, a photography contest, a movie night and a French food night. They will also welcome a guest speaker to the campus for a lecture on “French in North America.” This week of French activities will take place in late February and early March of 2019.
