These Legal Bases are based on the Circular NUM. 36/2020 of August 8th from the Deputy General Management of Organisation, Talent and Innovation and Sustainability. General registration number: 2020/0170840
The competition is intended for primary schoolchildren (courses 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th), compulsory secondary education, baccalaureate, vocational training (basic, intermediate and higher) and special education attending all state-run schools. Participation is reserved exclusively for schools and colleges authorised by the Ministry of Education and vocational training as such.
As of 14 September, head teachers and teachers of state schools may participate in the school competition and will have access to materials, through the website (www.concursoescolaronce.es). You may also register to participate by telephone (900 808 111).
To do this, the information about the school and participating teacher must be provided either through the website or by telephone.
The teaching staff that coordinate the groups of participating students will be responsible for entering all the information requested in the registration form correctly, and for uploading the classwork.
The deadline for receiving works is 5 February 2021. The School Contest organisers reserve the right to extend this deadline as they see fit.
In any case, in the interests of increasing participation, and according to their own criteria, each provincial jury may accept entries until two days before judgement day.
All centres will be able to download the material online from 14 September 2020. The material will be available on the competition website in Spanish, Catalan, Galician, Basque and English, in pdf format and in accessible pdf.
For the Educational Programme, an informative letter and four informative diptychs will be sent to the schools, by mail, for its dissemination among the coordinators of the different educational levels. In addition, teachers will have online access to a comprehensive support guide and learning material in the version appropriate for their school group. They will also be able to access the advice and guides necessary to carry out the work of the contest and, in this edition, also a specific document to guide the design of an advertising campaign.
When creating the complementary materials, teaching values have been developed to show other realities different from those of the students. These materials can be used by participants to document themselves and teachers to guide the work. In this material, references to different studies and articles of different authors and specialised entities in the subject matter of the Contest have been included.
To streamline the work of the national jury, winners in the autonomous regional phases have been carried out in the co-official languages, the Basque Language, Catalan and Galician, will be translated into Castilian Spanish. If the participating group does not submit the translation, this will be done by the corresponding regional office of the ONCE.
Participation will be for by full classrooms (a piece of work per class) overseen by a teacher. Each participating class must submit a single work. If the same work is presented by several classes, only the first of these uploaded to the website will be accepted. Works done by several classes will not be accepted.
A (3rd and 4th years of primary education)
B (5th and 6th years of primary education)
C (secondary education and basic vocational training)
D (baccalaureate and middle and higher level vocational training)
E (special education)
The projects in the last two categories will only participate in the final phase of the contest and will be evaluated by a national jury.
Participation in the competition entails producing classroom work in the correct category for the school year of the pupils. As an exception, work done by students in different categories in rural schools which are grouped together and work done by travelling circus classes, special support classes, may be accepted.
In these cases, the class will participate in the category where there are most students.
In the event of a tie, the class will participate in the higher category.
The maximum number of participants per work is the maximum number of pupils in the class according to the law applicable to each level.
On the other hand, due to circumstances derived from the Coronavirus pandemic, the modality of participation may be modified to adapt to the measures that schools must adopt for the protection of health. Therefore, in the event that for health reasons the school is obliged to divide the classroom into groups, group/work participation will be exceptionally allowed. In any case, for logistical and economic reasons, the maximum number of students participating in all the groups/class may not exceed, in any case, the maximum of 38 students per class.
We are offering:
A teaching-practical unit consisting of a supporting guide for teachers and learning materials that invites students to analyse, think about, discuss and work in terms to create an advertising campaign to raise awareness and encourage responsible use of technology, avoiding abuse that leads to unwanted risks and consequences as well as different types of addition.

Primary and special education students (Categories A, B and E) must create a radio advertisement no longer and one minute capable of transmitting a message on proper use of technologies by minors.

To create the advertising poster, students may select cuttings from magazines and newspapers, use images from the Internet, take pictures themselves or make a mixture of the previous options. If content or images owned by third parties are used, participating teachers must ensure that they are free of rights or that they have the corresponding intellectual property rights to the extent necessary under the terms of this call. ONCE reserves the right to request documentation from participating faculty to prove these circumstances.

If the class group does a traditional illustration or collage, the teacher must scan or photograph the work in order to upload it to the competition website, as indicated above.
In category D (FP superior and baccalaureate) students will make an advertisement, which must be no more than 40" long, to raise awareness about the responsible use of technology and the risks involved in its abuse.
