Competitions 2019-2020

Its not all about winning but If you're not in, you can't win! As a nation, we are extremely lucky with the number of competitions and awards available to students. Have a look through the below details of competitions open to schools. Advise your students to enter competitions as an extra-curricular activity or integrate the competition/awards into your scheme of work.

Teachers can promote healthy competition in the classroom by promoting the upcoming national competitions or by integrating them into their scheme of work.

The in-house Scoilnet team has gathered the upcoming competitions and created a dedicated collection page for easy access. Flick through the competitions with your class to see if there is a competition/award that stands out.

Why enter a competition? Here are some possible answers...

  • Purpose to complete a task
  • Motivation to try
  • Challenge students
  • Learn something new or develop a skill
  • Showcase a skill or talent
  • Improve teamwork and collaboration
  • Build self-esteem, resilience, coping skills, and perseverance

Competition providers can contact the Scoilnet team with their competition details here.
