Le Texas French Symposium recherche des juges bénevoles

Le Texas French Sympoisum recherche des juges bénévoles pour les épreuves qui auront lieu
les 27 et 28 mars 2015

à Klein Forest High School,
11400 Misty Valley Drive, Houston, TX 77066

Depuis sa création en 1964 à San Antonio, le TFS n’a cessé d’évoluer aux quatre coins du Texas pour promouvoir le ft encourager les étudiants de la 3ème à la Terminale (9th-12th grade) à s’intéresser à la culture française.

Près de 1000 élèves participeront les 27 et 28 mars 2015 sur le thème du concours de cette année : « Les impressionnistes en France ».

Le concours s’adresse à des élèves étudiant le Français, du niveau 1 au niveau 5/6, et comprend des épreuves écrites de langue, de grammaire et de civilisation, suivies d’épreuves orales de poésie, de lecture d’extraits en prose, de lectures non préparées, de commentaires oraux de documents iconographiques et d’interprétation de courtes œuvres théâtrales.

Les élèves peuvent aussi présenter des extraits musicaux : solos de piano, solos ou concerts d’instruments, solos ou groupes vocaux.

Des créations artistiques telles que collages, montages, albums, posters, tableaux ou photos peuvent être soumises par les candidats.

Ces travaux seront exposés et visibles pendant les pauses. Des documents vidéo préalablement transmis au jury peuvent être aussi présentés au concours.

Les épreuves commencent le vendredi à 15h et se poursuivront le samedi toute la journée à partir de 8h.

Le banquet du samedi soir se termine par la cérémonie de remise des prix : médailles, rubans et trophées seront distribués aux gagnants du district, de la région et de l’état du Texas.

L’organisation entière du concours repose sur le bénévolat et il n’est pas nécessaire d’être professeur pour être juge.

Vous pouvez être membre d’un jury dans plusieurs créneaux horaires de votre choix : le vendredi soir, le samedi matin ou/et le samedi après-midi.

Si vous êtes juge TSF pour une première fois, vous bénéficierez d’une petite « orientation » quelques jours avant les épreuves.

Sue Cotter, coordinatrice des juges, vous donne plus d’infos ci-dessous.

Si vous êtes intéressés, remplissez sans tarder la fiche d’inscription, votre participation sera grandement appréciée.

Lettre de Sue Cotter  
Bonjour !
Once again, I’m the Judge Coordinator for the Texas French Symposium. Since you were so kind to volunteer to help us last year, I was hoping you might be able to do so this year. I would love to see you again and meet those unable to attend. I’m sending this so you can “Save the Date”.

Symposium 2015 will take place on Friday and Saturday March 27 & 28 at Klein Forest High School in the Klein ISD, NW of Houston. As many of you know, this is my 6th year to coordinate judges but I have been associated with Symposium since 1980. I’ve done just about everything so can answer most questions. One thing I know for sure is - we still need your help! We have 38 schools registered and over 850 participants and several new events

If you’re no longer interested, just let me know and I’ll remove your name from future mailings. On the other hand, would you be so kind as to pass this on to whomever you feel might be? 

As you may recall, our biggest need is during preliminary rounds. They will be on Friday evening March 27 from about 7:30-10:00pm. They continue on Saturday morning March 28 from about 8-10:30am. We also need many judges for semi-finals (about 10-2), fewer for final rounds (about 2-6). Judges can help any time for as long as they want! We promise to feed you very well while you are with us and guarantee the meeting of many Francophones from all over the world. Who knows where that can lead? This year I will once again have certificates for volunteer community service hours that folks may be able to use with their employers. I will also have professional development & growth forms for teachers.

On Friday evening March 27 we need judges for piano, instrumental group, drama group, vocal solo, sight reading, prose, and art. We especially need judges for art and music. We always have a hard time finding them. I think people are scared away because they don’t know much or any French. For instrumental music and piano, no knowledge of the French language or its cultures is required. For the art, it’s not necessary either but a familiarity with francophone cultures would be a plus for this year’s theme of Les Impressionnistes. In any case, there will always be someone at the art who is willing to offer an opinion even if they are judging something else. All the art is judged beginning at around 6:00 pm on Friday until it’s done – usually by 8:30-9:00. As for vocal music, if we can find a music judge we can usually find someone to help with the French but it is typically the music that is the deciding factor. I mention this because you may have friends and family members who would like to help but are reluctant because of their knowledge of French. We need them too! 

On Saturday morning March 28, from about 8-10:30am, we need judges for poetry, guided speaking, sight reading, drama solo, vocal group, and instrumental solo preliminary rounds. From then until about 2 we have semi-finals in all events. Final rounds begin around 2 in the afternoon and should be over by 6:00pm.

I will be doing everything by e-mail. I’ll send a registration reminder in February and information about how to judge, what we would like folks to judge and when as the competition gets closer. That will all come with the final assignments the week before Symposium, beginning Wednesday, March18 and no later than Saturday, March 21.

We appreciate any help you can give us! There is currently no deadline for judges to register but the sooner I have volunteers, the sooner I can start the schedule. You will find the judge registration form in the judges’ section of our website www.texasfrenchsymposium.org. The site has lots of useful information about Symposium including the judge hints that contain all your great suggestions!

The dates: Friday and Saturday, March 27 & 28

The place: Klein Forest High School

11400 Misty Valley, Houston, Texas 77066

The times: Friday – 7:30-10:00pm, approximately (except art)

Saturday – 8am to 6:00 pm, approximately

Please let me know if you can help this year.
Merci d’avance et bien à vous,
SueC
