Euroscola Competitions

Bringing together the young minds of Europe

At Euroscola students aged 16 to 18 from across the EU become an MEP for a day at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.  They debate, negotiate, amend, vote and adopt resolutions on real European issues.  Twelve Irish groups take part each year by participating in competitions organised by the European Parliament Liaison Office in Ireland.  Competition winners (24 students and two teachers) receive a subsidy towards the cost of travelling to Strasbourg.  In order to take an active part students prepare in advance and come to Strasbourg already acquainted with the issues up for discussion.
