IE launches the ‘IE University Challenge’ for Baccalaureate students
14/03/2011 - General
The competition is designed to foster solidarity and promote the use of the English language among students.
IE University will give iPads to the authors of the best projects based around UN objectives for 2010.
The best reward for students is no longer just a good grade. IE University is set to launch the first edition of ‘IE University Challenge’, a multimedia competition for Baccalaureate students aimed at promoting, recognizing, disseminating and rewarding creativity and talent among the younger generation, while encouraging the use of English. Winners will receive the new and much-awaited iPad.
In order to take part in this innovative project, students have to be studying the first or second year of the Baccalaureate in any college or place of study in Spain.
Candidates should register at www.retoieuniversity.com between April 12 and 25, 2010. Students will have to organize themselves in groups of 3 to 5 people, led by a tutor.
Each group will choose a challenge related with the three UN themes for this year: the rapprochement of cultures: biodiversity; and youth. All projects have to be presented in English.
Projects must be uploaded onto the website between April 26 and May 9 in video format and in English. Only one project is permitted per group and total freedom of artistic expression will be permitted in all three categories. Votes and comments by internauts made between April 26 and may 16 will be taken into account for during the judging process.
The winning project will be announced on May 24, 2010, and members of the winning team will all receive an iPad, while the place of study they represent will receive a Smart Board and the professor who served as their tutor will receive a year’s free access to IE Lab.
The ‘IE University Challenge’ is run by IE University, a private international university based in Spain, and by the leading agencies of VOCENTO, a leading Spanish media group.
