Rossland francophone students finalists in national flash mob contest

Students at l’École des Sept-sommets have made it to the finals in a national flash mob contest.

Students at l’École des Sept-sommets have made it to the finals in a national flash mob contest.

Flash Ton École (Flash Mob Your School) was open to francophone schools across the country, and Rossland’s francophone students submitted a video of themselves singing and dancing to “Moi, J’aime Skier” (roughly translated as “Me, I Like to Ski”).

The contest is part of Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie, an initiative of the Canadian Foundation for Cross-Cultural Dialogue, whose mandate is to promote and support dialogue among the Francophone and Acadian, and all other communities in Canada.

Sept-sommets was one of 25 out of 52 schools to make it to the finals. To win and collect a bursary $3000 for first place, $1000 for second place, or $500 for third or fourth place the school needs help from the community in the form of online votes.

To vote for the Sept-sommets video, visit rvf.ca/contest-flash-ton-ecole-final.php. Voting is open until March 23 and those who vote are entered to win a trip for two to Paris, including air travel, accommodations for six nights and $500 spending money per person.
