  • Level 5C* - Patch King placed 5th.

*Level C indicates that the student is a native speaker of the French language and was therefore in a tougher grading category.

**Level E indicates that the student has completed that level of French, but at the time of the Concours had not been in French class due to block scheduling.

Numerous other students placed in the top 20 for Iowa at various levels. Congratulations to all participants!
