The Grand Posters

A poster fair was held on the 16th of July 2015 by 14-16 year old students attending an English language summer camp at the Cavilam of Vichy, France. They spent a week preparing their posters promoting a less known sport. The posters were finally presented at the fair to students of other classes and to their teachers. The audience asked questions and finally voted for the best poster-cum-presentation. Out of a total of 51 votes, Group A won the competition with a total of 22 votes, while Group B came in second with 14 votes.

You will find pictures of the posters here below. Don't miss the tags mentioning the sport that was promoted!

Group B with “Sepak Takraw”

Hello! We are Victoria, Fanny and Maxime. We are 17, 16 and 16 years old. Victoria and me (Fanny) became friendly thanks to the Cavilam. We both play an instrument, we like sports and we are both average in English.

During the week, Fanny, Maxime and I presented a poster called "Underwater Ice Hockey", which is an extreme sport in Austria. It was great fun! We learnt a lot. Our professor and we created a competition with our posters. We lost it... and we were sad... but we had fun!!!
