In the ONCE contest, all students from Spanish public, private and government-subsidised schools can participate, who are studying: Special Education, Primary (years 3 to 6), Secondary, Basic Vocational Training, Baccalaureate and Vocational Training (intermediate and higher levels).
It doesn’t matter. The topic is completely different, as well as the creative projects requested of participants, so it is in reality a totally new contest.
Each classroom will participate by working as a single group and present only one project developed among all the students or selected from different proposals that were worked on in smaller groups. In the teacher materials, you will find some suggestions on how to do it.
1 class- 1 work// 1 work- 1 class.
No. To participate, a teacher from the school must register.
This programme is integrated into the school syllabus. For this reason, it does not entail any additional work. The teaching materials that we provide will let each teacher develop the contents and activities they deem timely in their classrooms (depending on time and possibilities) to introduce their students to the contest topic and facilitate their later participation project.
The level of involvement in supervising and helping students create the participation project will be the decision of each teacher. The teacher is only committed to explaining the activity to them and subsequently submitting the participation project to us.
This awareness raising programme and its teaching materials were developed based on the syllabus and can be specifically worked on in tutoring sessions, as well as through these basic skills:
No. They are only a tool to assist teachers in their task to introduce this year’s topic to their students and how to tackle the project to be submitted.
Yes. Each classroom-group must submit:
Primary (3rd-6th), Secondary and Special Education:
A poster designed like a banner to represent the international movement for inclusiveness, (in .jpg format with a maximum weight of 2 MB), accompanied by a title (with a maximum of 140 characters) and an audio-description to serve as an accessibility tool for jurors with visual impairment (one minute maximum). In MP3, MP4, WAV, AAC or 3GP format.
Baccalaureate and Vocational Training:
An anthem that transmits the international principles of inclusiveness, with a maximum duration of 2.30 minutes. It must be accompanied by a title (with a maximum of 140 characters) and a text with the anthem lyrics. Works must be uploaded in MP3, MP4, WAV, AAC or 3GP format.
Once the students in the classroom group have decided upon the idea that they want to express, they will design the inclusiveness banner. To do so, they must download a template on the website and must maintain the proportions of the format: rectangular and horizontal. Students can take clippings from magazines and newspapers, use pictures from the Internet, take their own photos or use a combination of the above.
The competition website contains a choice of soundtracks that you can choose or combine and then compose lyrics. Use of these soundtracks is not mandatory. If you prefer, you can compose your own music with programmes like Incredibox.
Of course. After the teacher explains what the project to submit should be like, students may spend all the time they want on developing the project outside the classroom.
