Can you believe we are now into the 8th year of Schoolovision? Who would have thought of this when we started out in 2009, following along Michael's idea to link primary schools from across Europe using the eTwinning platform in a project based on the Eurovision Song Contest.
Each participating country has the chance to choose a song, sing it and video it, before uploading it to the blog by the cut-off date, usually around 1 week before the real ESC. Then, all the pupils in all the participating countries watch and evaluate all the songs, before voting for their own personal favourite, usually the day before the real ESC. For this extra special live vote, we use the webcam conferencing tool, FlashMeeting.
Then, in 2011, our previous winners ZS Husova from Brno in the Czech Republic came roaring back, winning the 3rd edition of Schoolovision in fine style, with their outstanding entry, Jaro.
Then, in 2012, we expanded eastwards, with new entries from several countries, including Ukraine, Russia, Georgia and Azerbaijan which helped take our total number of partners to 38, our largest to date. The standards also went up even further, and incredibly, all the top 3 entries came from new entrant schools! The winners were Hoknes barneskole, from Namsos in Norway, with Ærlighet varer lengst, a quite brilliant entry!
In 2013, our expansion east was recognised by eTwinning, and we were awarded a very special certificate for our "outstanding collaboration and contribution to eTwinning" at the European Conference in Lisbon. Two months later, and one of our newest countries, Israel, triumphed with an equally outstanding entry, their very own tribute to the only Israeli astronaut, Ilan Ramon, lost in the 2003 Columbia space shuttle disaster.
In 2014 our top stars from the Czech Republic won once again with their amazing Karneval entry. For the second time we conducted an additional teacher voting to honour our partners' commitment in pecial categories like environment or self-made song.
2015 saw a little change in our usual Schoolovision routines, as some of us took a break while the others entered their videos to a fun round without voting or placement.
