Any kind of picture, using any kind of painting technique and in any format, can be entered.
To create their picture, pupils should take their inspiration from one of the six Sheets or from the contents of the Pupil’s exercise book, or use their imagination and creativity to represent themes, situations or contexts related to the future and science fiction inventions relating to ”energy”, “sustainable development” and “the environment”. Each picture should have a title describing what it represents.
To help your pupils, you can start, for example, by using one of the 6 Sheets or the things they learned during the course. Each group of pupils can give their imagination free rein, depicting what struck them the most and how they intend to develop it in their “invention”.
To take part in the competition, each class should create a group picture (max. three pictures per class – no pictures by individuals).
The sender label contained in the kit should be filled out and attached to the back of each picture.
The school may request the free collection of the entries by express courier.
To arrange a collection, contact the School Call Centre by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling +39 06.21118426.
The collection must be arranged before the competition closing date of 27 April 2015.
The pictures will be examined by a special panel of judges, which will decide on the winners and their relative prizes. Its decision is final.
The following criteria are used to assess the entries:
- relevance to the themes proposed,
- the pupils' ability to represent their chosen theme
The three winning classes will receive:
1st prize: an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB.)
