Primary Schools Calendar Competition

Starts: 01/09/2010 - 9:00am
Ends: 08/10/2010 - 1:00pm  

Location: Scotland

The aim of the European Parliament Office in Scotland 2011 Calendar Competition is to find a picture that would be used to illustrate one month in a European Parliament 2011 calendar.  The theme for 2011 is 'Me and Europe'.  Pupils might like to think about: what does Europe mean to me? Which countries in Europe have I visited and what have I seen in these countries?  What does Scotland look like in Europe?

Entries are invited from pupils at Scottish primary schools only and should be submitted to: the European Parliament Office in Scotland, The Tun, 4 Jackson's Entry, Holyrood Road, Edinburgh EH8 8PJ, between 01 September 2010 and 08 October 2010.  Schools may enter a maximum of one picture per pupil, although pictures that are the result of group work (i.e. from more than one pupil) may also be submitted.  Pictures should be A4 size.  Different artistic techniques are allowed.  It is important that each picture has the name, age, school name and name of the drawing either on the back or attached.

Entries will be judged by a panel comprising Scottish MEPs and officials of the European Parliament Office in Scotland.  The decision of the panel will be final.  The judging panel will pick a winner and two runners up and the result will be announced in the last week of October.  These pictures will be included in an exhibition of the best pictures that will take place in European Union House in Tallinn, Estonia, from where the overall competition is being co-ordinated.  The calendar will be launched in December, with a presentation to the winner.  The school of the winner and both runners up will receive several copies of the European Parliament 2011 calendar and all schools that enter will receive at least one copy.
