February 6, 2009 - BATHURST|
The poster for the 20th annual Provincial French Pride Week was officially unveiled today at École secondaire Népisiguit in Bathurst. In September 2008, the Department of Education and various organizations invited all francophone high-school art classes in New Brunswick to enter a new contest. Students were to design the poster for Provincial French Pride Week, based on the 2009 theme: Francophones de tous les pays, venez fLter en Acadie.
