Samford French students have earned honors in a national essay competition on the subject of “French: A Multifaceted Language.”

Emily Hancock earned first prize, comprising a certificate, medal and check.

Katie-Bryn Hubbard earned third prize, also comprising a certificate, medal and check.

Essays by Juliana Guzman, Alexandre Peters and Emily Sanders also were selected to represent Samford in the competition.

The students entered the competition during National French Week in November, 2014, and learned of the honors in March. The annual celebration, sponsored, by the American Association of Teachers of French, seeks to highlight the cuisine, arts, sports, traditions, science, and technology of the thirty-three countries that have French as an official language and, of the twenty-six countries and regions that use French as a second or unofficial language.
