National French Contest Policies


Contest materials

No refunds will be issued for on-line testing materials or review materials. Once a teacher submits registration the teacher is obligated to pay for the students registered.  Because AATF is a non-profit organization, we cannot absorb the cost of allowing deletions, partial deletions or of issuing refunds.

Review materials or awards

No refunds will be issued for any products: review materials, medals, certificates, etc.


Teacher and School Information

All teacher and school information submitted to the National French Contest by teachers through the test registration process remains private and is not shared with any third party.  However, the National French Contest does share teacher and school information with affiliated organizations:  Lingco Language Labs, (the National French Contest’s on-line test provider), and the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF).

Student Information

All student information submitted to the National French Contest (NFC) by teachers/parents remains private and is not shared with any third parties.  However, student information necessary to identify students will be shared with Lingco Language Labs  (NFC’s on-line test provider) as part of the on-line testing process. We rely on teachers to obtain the necessary parental consents prior to collecting information from students under age 13. Any information that we collect is used only for providing National French Contest to the teachers and schools.

Student Results

All scores generated from the National French Contest remain private.  The National French Contest only releases score for a student to the teacher/parent who registered that student.
