The ONCE Social Group School Contest is available to all students enrolled at Spanish state, subsidised and private schools in Special Education, Primary (years 3 to 6), Secondary and Basic Vocational Training.
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.
To participate in the contest you may submit one piece of work per classroom in the appropriate category, according to the students' academic year. In exceptional cases, work done by students in more than one category may be accepted, such as work by groups from rural schools or travelling circus school programmes, special support classes, etc.
In such cases, the class will participate in the category that applies to the majority of your students. If there is a draw, then the class will take part in the higher category.
The maximum number of participants per task will be the maximum number of students in the class established by the law in force for each level.
No. To participate, a teacher from the school must register.
This programme is integrated in the educational curriculum and has been designed in line with the educational reality. Therefore, it does not involve any additional work. The teaching material we provide allows each teacher to work on the contents and activities they consider appropriate to introduce their students to the theme of the Contest and to facilitate their subsequent participation work (depending on their time and possibilities).
The degree of involvement supervising and helping students with the participation work is up to each teacher. All the teacher needs to do is explain the activity to the class and send us their participation work afterwards.
This educational action programme and its teaching materials have been prepared based on the curriculum and can be worked on through the following Core Competences:
No. They are just a tool to make it easier for teachers to introduce their students to this year's topic and a suggested approach the work to be presented.
Yes, the work must be done with a digital whiteboard, a tool available on the Contest website.
Each class must submit:
A creative BANNER. The design must include a phrase or slogan that highlights the importance of achieving a more inclusive society.
Finished works must be accompanied by an audio-description* to make them accessible.
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.
