Spanish Competition for 5th Years

Spanish Competition 5th Years

The Post-Primary Languages Initiative in collaboration with the Consejería de Educación de la Embajada de España en Dublin is delighted to announce its annual competition for 5th year students of Spanish. La Junta de Castilla y León and the Spanish Tourist Office in Dublin are sponsoring the competition.


Create a 2-minute video taking place in Castilla y León. The video should incorporate an artifact from Irish daily life, such as a hurley, a kettle, a potato masher, etc. which is not widely used in Spain. You need to integrate it in your video so that you show its normal use, and some creative new uses and then to think of some creative new uses, if you were to take it with you on a trip to Castilla y León. How could this very ‘Irish’ object become part of your trip? You can take your inspiration from movies, songs, or adverts. Creativity and cultural knowledge as well as language competence will be rewarded.



3 scholarships to cover the cost of flights, accommodation and language school for a week in Castilla y León during the summer of 2019 for 2 students and their teacher.


3 scholarships each to cover the cost of a one-week language course and accommodation for 2 students and their teacher during the summer of 2019.


• Entries must be embedded on the Post Primary Languages Initiative Facebook page before the 29th of April 2019 on the Post-Primary Languages Facebook page:

• Entries should be prepared by teams of 2 students and not exceed 2 minutes in duration, including credits.

• Videos should contain the name of the authors, their teacher, and the school’s name, town and county.

• All music and images used must be credited/acknowledged. We suggest you use copyright free music, or simply play yourself! It is the entrant’s responsibility that the film does not infringe copyright.

• The jurors’ decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. The jury will select the best videos based on their creativity, final production, and content.

• By entering the competition, you agree to post photos/comments during your stay in Spain on the Post-Primary Languages Initiative Facebook page.
