March 13, 2020 Contest Update – TFS 2020 Cancelled

It is with deep regret that we announce that the 2020 Texas French Symposium contest at A & M Consolidated High School has been cancelled due to the current situation with COVID-19.  We had hoped to continue with the contest, as planned, but events and school closings has forced the TFS Board to reconsider.  Additionally, we do not want to risk spreading or exposing anyone to the virus.  Your health and safety are of our utmost concern.  This is an unprecedented situation that none of us could have predicted.


We appreciate everyone’s hard work and dedication in planning for this contest.  As soon as plans for TFS 2021 have been finalized, we will send information to schools and will post information on our website.  Look for some exciting changes coming in 2021!!


Thank you for understanding the difficulties of this situation and for your continued support of the Texas French Symposium.



Susan Dworaczyk – President, Texas French Symposium

(on behalf of the 2020 TFS Board of Directors)


Texas French Symposium is a statewide competition for high school students of French (non-native French speakers). French teachers from any high school in Texas may bring students to compete in oral events, academic tests, art and music events.
