  1. This is the coolest contest ever (except for the fact that it is not open to kids in Québec… Why is that?)! I wish I was still in Grade 5!

    1. Thanks! Contesting rules are quite different in Quebec, so it’s a legal thing. I couldn’t even begin to explain the ins and outs of why, but I have a long legal document explaining it 😉

  2. OMG i am so exited about the video contest.I can see Clarisse entering this contest for the love of acting and all!!!!! 🙂 ❤
