Todos Contam competition

The 8th Todos Contam competition attracted 58 applications to the School Awards, involving over 11,000 students and around 70 schools from most districts in mainland Portugal as well as the Autonomous Regions of Madeira and the Azores.

Of the 58 applications received, 5 applied for the kindergarten category, 6 for the 1st stage of primary education, 11 for the 2nd stage of primary education, 17 for the 3rd stage of primary education, and 19 for secondary education.

The jury excluded 5 applications that did not comply with the Regulation, as they included initiatives co-developed with financial sector institutions, without involvement of the respective sector association, and therefore did not abide by the principles for financial education initiatives within the framework of the National Plan for Financial Education.

There were also 5 applications for the Teacher Award.
