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.
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 (year 3-6) and Special Education:
A creative poster that illustrates the pupils’ guidelines to promote and demand diversity and inclusion in the playground, (in .jpg format to a maximum of 2 MB), accompanied by a title (with a maximum of 140 characters) and an audio-description that will serve as an accessibility tool for visually impaired jurors (1 minute maximum).
Secondary Education, Basic Vocational Training, Baccalaureate and Vocational Training:
A music video (in .avi format/.mp4/.mov, of no more than 100 MB and a maximum duration of 60 seconds) advocating for a more inclusive playtime accompanied by a title (with a maximum of 140 characters), a text with the lyrics and an explanation-dash of what happens in the video to make the work more accessible to the jury.
Once the students in the classroom group have decided on the idea they want to convey, they can film their music videos. They can do this with a video camera or another type of device with a built-in camera, provided that the images are clear, sharp and filmed with high resolution (we recommend landscape and not portrait format). In addition, if the students wish, they can use video editing programmes to edit their video.
The competition provides a gallery with five music tracks, although their use is not compulsory. You are free to use any royalty-free music you may have. You can even compose your own music with programmes such as 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.
