Each project will be evaluated:
1) First by a jury composed of European experts in education and consumer policy. The jury will have a balanced geographical representation.
The evaluation will be done on the basis of the following 5 major criteria:
1. How well does your project address the theme of the competition? Is it suitable for the age target group?
2. Is the pedagogical approach clear, creative and diverse? (clear lesson learnt, use of at least 3 formats among those of the list)
3. Type of collaboration with the other partner class (examples, strategies)
4. Use of the website as a research source to develop the project (find a partner school, use pedagogical resources or tools)
5. Potential of the proposed solution to be implemented at schools / family daily life / social community
20 projects will be shortlisted. This treshold may be extended if there are projects obtaining equal points.
The list of the shortlisted projects will be published on Consumer Classroom website before the voting session starts.
2) The short-listed projects will then be displayed on the Consumer Classroom website for two weeks and subject to online vote. Anyone who finds your project deserving recognisition will be able to vote for it through the project gallery on Consumer Classroom website.
The main judging criteria for voters to select a project will be:
- Relevance with the competition theme;
- Clarity of message;
- Originality / innovation in approach to the subject.
Your project team should spread the word about your project - tell your family, friends and classmates about it. Every vote counts!
