In partnership with the French Embassy in Canada, le Salon du livre de l’Outaouais, and Transistor Média, we present the Lance ton balado contest open to students ages 12-18.

Addressing the topic “Reading the future”, students are invited to come together in groups of up to three people and create a podcast in their preferred style.

Many prizes are to be won: travel to and participate in the Salon du livre de l’Outaouais, podcast production with an expert, etc.

Thanks to Transistor Media, students will have the chance to watch a free webinar to learn the technicalities of creating a podcast.

For more details on the contest and to submit a podcast, visit the SLO website! The deadline to participate is January 12, 2024.
