Meilleurs Ouvriers de France

The “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” competitions, for professional excellence

Participating in a “Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France” competition (“One of France’s best laborers”), is above all else the opportunity to get personal gratification from fulfilling such a commitment. It also represents the desire for the recognition of professionals through the completion of a task, or the culmination of a constant search for excellence in one’s trade and the will to obtain an official diploma.


A participation leading to a level III state diploma.


The Meilleur Ouvrier de France competitions lead to the awarding of a level III French state diploma granted by the French Ministry of Education. Its recipients can use it for their professional endeavors, for registering in training programs, as well as for teaching and training positions. Recognized for their high level of skill, they participate in the promotion of their trade. Anyone aged 23 or more who possesses high-level skill in a trade can participate.

Abilympics supports persons with disabilities towards achieving success in the competition.

As always driven by that desire for integration, the Abilympics France association guides persons with disabilities in this demanding competition and implements for each of them an extensive, tailor-made program.

For 2017 and 2018, 3 Abilympics contestants already benefit from the Abilympics support program in three different skill categories: Bakery, Photography and Pottery.
