European Competition – Europe at School
The “European Competition” is one of the oldest creative competitions in Europe and Germany. It has played an important part in the European integration since its inception. For over 60 years, hundreds of thousands of pupils have been working on European history, culture, values and policies; no matter what age they are or which school they attend.
With activities allocated according to their age, schoolchildren are able to methodologically and creatively work on projects, for example by painting, writing speeches, recording and producing videos, creating collages and presentations. With this call for creativity, the “European Competition” encourages children’s and teenagers’ interest and enthusiasm about Europe.
eTwinning and the European Competition
Since 2012, thanks to support from “eTwinning”, one of the largest European online platforms for educational exchange, school classes from different countries are able to work together on all topics.
This collaboration takes place within an online classroom called TwinSpace. Here, students have access to various innovative tools such as blogs, wikis, video chats, online notice boards and many more. In addition to being creative and varied, working with “eTwinning” also encourages students to develop their skill set In media and languages and fosters intercultural learning.
