The European Commission has launched the Call for Applications for the “Jan Amos Comenius Prize for high quality teaching about the European Union”.
The deadline for applications is 6 February 2020, 17.00 CET.
The prize will reward secondary schools that help their pupils learn about the European Union in ways that inspire. It will provide EU-wide recognition and visibility to relevant work in each Member State and will highlight the importance of teaching and learning about the EU at a young age. It will showcase inspirational teaching methods that engage pupils actively in learning about the EU and will help spread these practices.
There will be up to twenty-eight (28) prizes of €8,000 each, one per EU Member State.
- The Rules of Contest have now been published.
- You can submit your application only through the EU Survey website.
The call is open to ISCED level 2 and ISCED level3 secondary schools established and based in the European Union (not to individual teachers). For more details, on which schools are eligible, see question 5 in the Frequently Asked Questions below.
