Over 370,00 Francophone students worldwide enter in this esteemed contest, and Alexandre was one of 93 finalists to be invited to Montreal for the final battle! Moreover, while Alexandre's official region is the United States - he ranked first amongst all non-Canadian participants. This is an incredible honor and well-deserved by the hardworking Alexandre!
