Preguntas Frecuentes

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

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).

Up

AND IF MY STUDENTS ALREADY PARTICIPATED LAST YEAR?

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.

Up

WHAT ARE THE PARTICIPATION GROUPS?

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.

Up

CAN STUDENTS REGISTER AND PARTICIPATE ON THEIR OWN?

No. To participate, a teacher from the school must register.

Up

WHAT EXTRA WORK DOES IT ENTAIL FOR THE TEACHER?

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.

Up

WHAT IS THE LINK OF THE ONCE CONTEST TO BASIC SKILLS?

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:

  • Learning to learn competency
  • Social and citizenship competency
  • Autonomy and personal initiative competencies
  • Cultural and artistic competency
  • Processing information and digital competency
Up

IS IT COMPULSORY TO DO THE ACTIVITIES IN THE TEACHING UNIT?

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.

Up

ARE THERE ANY COMPULSORY SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE PROJECT?

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.

Up

HOW CAN WE MAKE THE MUSIC VIDEO?

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.

Up

WHERE IS THE MUSIC FOR THE MUSIC 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.

Up

HOW SHOULD WE SUBMIT OUR ENTRIES?

  • If the class has created a manual poster, scan or photograph the work
  • Make sure that the poster is in .jpg format and that it is no larger than 2MB. Music videos must be in .avi/.mp4/.mov format and must be no larger than 100MB.
  • Go to the private teacher’s area on the ONCE Competition website.
  • Click on ‘Upload Work”.
  • Enter the title of the work or sentence that your class has chosen to represent the work (maximum of 140 characters).

  • Select the image file (accompanying this with the audio file) or video (accompanied by the text file with the lyrics of the song).
  • Lastly, click on the “Confirm work” button.
Up

CAN STUDENTS WORK AT HOME?

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.
