National French Contest Administrator Amy Coombs stated, “A Platinum winner is the highest award in Le Grand Concours—this student [Sarah Hassan] earned the top score in the nation in his/her respective level/division. The award includes a platinum medal, a plaque for the student and a Lauréat National Certificate.”

Classmates Layla Jarrahy and Manav Bansal earned gold followed by Anya Chabria with silver and junior Adeel Anwar with bronze. Freshman Emily Yagoda earned gold in Level 2 and sophomore Jamie Ryan earned bronze in the Level 3 category. Adeel Anwar now holds medals from all three associations (American Associations of Teachers of French, Italian and Spanish & Portuguese). Congratulations to all the students and Wheatley French teacher Jean François Henley.
