Media Stars- “Our Europe” Competition
The ‘Our Europe’ competition, created by the Scottish European Educational Trust and funded by the European Parliament is a new film-making competition for Scottish high school students which aims to promote knowledge about the European Parliament and European Union and develop the ICT skills of young people.
The competition invites schools “to offer students the chance to work on an engaging interdisciplinary project, combining Modern Languages with Modern Studies and Media/ICT”. Each team will consist of two S3 and two S6 pupils, and in the first round they will work together to produce “a storyboard and an audio or video pitch describing what makes you a European and how the European Parliament affects you”. The best teams from the first round will then get the opportunity to make their film, working with media professionals from Radio Lingua. The final round participants will pitch their film to experts in Brussels.
