Provincial phase:

All the projects submitted by the schools in each province will participate in the competition. The projects ranked first in each category (A, B and C) will go on to compete in the next phase. In some cases, the Technical Committee may make an initial culling of all the projects to ensure that there are no more than 100 projects to be assessed in any given province.

Autonomous community phase:

In each autonomous community, one project per category will be chosen. These projects will then go on to compete in the national phase.

National phase:

Categories D and E will go on to compete in this phase.

Category D works will be assessed in advance by a Technical Panel, which will consist of teaching professionals and inclusion specialists. This Panel will select a maximum of seventeen (17) works to compete at nationwide level, whose jury will select five finalists from this previous list, from which the state winner will be chosen.

Category E works (special education) will be assessed by a technical team from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. Five finalist works will also be selected, from among which the nationwide winner will be chosen

One project per category will win the prize (A, B, C, D and E).

8. Prizes

For registering, both students and teachers will receive a ballpoint pen, free of charge for “writing about the future school for all” together

9. Legislation

The property rights of the physical supports of the projects will be transferred to ONCE, which may request that the original materials of any project submitted be sent to it, without the obligation to return these materials. Regarding the original projects that win the regional phase (categories A, B and C), as long as it is deemed that their physical presentation will bring added value, they will have to be sent in so that a more exhaustive analysis of them can be made by the National Jury. For the aforementioned reasons, the same may hold true with the original projects in the Special Education category.

With regard to intellectual property rights, the participants give ONCE all or part of the proprietary rights of the transfer for a period of 50 years, without either territorial or material limits, as well as the rights to reproduction, publication on paper and via the Internet, compilation, public communication and exploitation of the projects.

ONCE and its Foundation reserve the right to freely process, adapt, modify and correct the winning projects in order to adapt them to the needs of this competition.
