To join the competition, projects must have been awarded the European Quality Label in any year of the project’s lifespan. Only the partners of a project who have received the European Quality Label can apply for and win a European Prize. All projects must demonstrate that they have been active in the 2012-2013 school year.
Projects can only apply once for the eTwinning Prizes; however, projects that have demonstrated a significant improvement over time can apply a second time at the discretion of the National Support Services involved.
The deadline for submissions is 8 December 2013.
All entries are submitted by clicking the link available on your eTwinning Desktop.
