The founders of the association, with support from the Fondation de France, created the Prix France-Acadie in 1979 in order to promote Acadian culture and literature, showcase the talent of Acadian writers, and preserve the French language in North America. This contest is open to French-language authors who identify in some way with Acadians from the Canadian Maritimes or, occasionally, to French-Canadian authors of notable works about Acadia.
