Golden Word of the Francophony 2019

Illustrating the Universality of French

The winners of the "Golden Word of the Francophony 2019" contest have been unveiled at a final ceremony held at the François Bassil amphitheater at Saint-Joseph University, Beirut. The jury voted in favor of two laureates: Jacqueline Harb from Saint-Joseph University in the "students" category and Christia Aoun (dentist) from the "young professionals" category. Each one won a stay in Paris to participate in the Francophonie week in March 2020. Similarly, two public prizes were awarded to Marie Renée Kamouh of the Lebanese University, and Ibrahim Chafi of the Lebanese army following a close vote.

The "Golden Word" aims to promote business French (le français des affaires) to young students under the age of 27, and also to young professionals under the age of 40. It was created in 1988 by the association "Actions to Promote French Business" (APFA). The AUF Middle East is the main partner of this event, which is increasingly popular among young Lebanese. It was also organized in partnership with the French Institute of Lebanon and the Basil Fuleihan Institute of Finance.

 

Eight institutions took part in the competition as follows: Lebanese University, Saint Joseph University, Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Islamic University of Lebanon, Jinan University, Arab University of Beirut, Notre Dame University (NDU) and Balamand University.

The organizers recalled during the final ceremony that this initiative is very symbolic because it perfectly illustrates the universality of French, and perhaps most importantly, because it celebrates the vivacity of our Francophone space.

This festive ceremony was punctuated by the lively music of two students of the USJ who delivered for the occasion an unforgettable performance.
