CSISD high schoolers earn awards at French competition

The Texas French Symposium  is recognized by the Texas Education Agency as the official state French competition.  Students compete in 29 different contests including speaking, written, music, art, soccer, and drama events.  There are multiple levels of competition in each category and placement is mostly determined by the level of French course in which the student is enrolled.



Of the AMCHS and CSHS competitors, 23 students earned 45 top-six awards in 14 different categories.  Additionally, CSHS earned two top six team/group awards and AMCHS earned four.


AMCHS student Marley Hays earned an overall top 10 individual star because of her performance in multiple categories.


The two CSISD Texas French Symposium teams were coached by Randi Costenbader (CSHS) and Vanessa Mitchell (AMCHS).  The coaches had assistance from upper-level students and former students including, Ryan Lawrence, Viivi Jarvi, Vilja Jarvi, Victoria Fazzino, Taylor Zhang, Jonathan Yax, Preston Cunha, Yasmina Marden, Chantal Bonilla, David Bonilla, and Natalia Valdez-Vivas.
