Young people between the age of 14 and 17 from secondary schools in the province were invited to participate in the great provincial competition “Mon Grand Rire Pris 1”. They had to send to the Grand Rire a humorous capsule via the contest website. A selection was made by the Grand Rire festival team and the youth were invited to a filmed audition. The capsules of the auditions were left on the official contest website where people were asked to vote for their favorite comedian! The winner, Raphaelle Beaupré performed on stage at the Grand Théâtre de Québec at the Gala Michel Barrette in June 2013.
