It’s Our School! Ideas Competition

Competition for ideas

Competition for ideas

Deadline for entries: January 31, 2018

A creative competition for students: How would children and teens change schools if they had a say? What would they do differently at their own school, how do they imagine their desired school? And what needs to be done so that school life prepares them for a better future?

It's Our School! invites students to submit their wishes and demands for the schools of tomorrow. Whether they draw them up during a five-minute break, a lesson or a project week, whether in the form of an outline or a big vision — not the scope, but the wealth of ideas is what matters. All forms and formats are welcome: a short story or rap, a scientific experiment or 3D model, a blog or theater play, a photo collage or smartphone video.

Students between the ages of 5 and 19 who attend a German-language school are eligible to enter — singly, in groups or entire classes. The winners will travel to Berlin for the Schools of Tomorrow Festival in June 13 and 14, 2018. All of the ideas will later form part of a Student Manifesto.
