Through the contest we aim at instilling the young with love for the environment and especially for the country’s seas, illustrating ways of environmental protection, promoting the idea of electric propulsion in vessels and advancing technology through schools. We also aim at urging the young to choose new professions and enabling local insular economies to endorse a different production model, other than that of traditional products or tourism services, such as engineering and producing technology and know-how for electric vessels –a field where we lag behind as a country.

We address students of age groups of 13 to 18 years, that is to say students of Secondary Education (Junior High Schools, Senior High Schools, vocational lyceums and nautical lyceums). Their participation is optional, and requires the consent of their parents or guardians.

The organizing body will undertake the whole procedure of implementation of the contest, and guarantees protection of personal data as well as copyright protection of creators.

The exact span of the whole duration is estimated at 9 months, specifically from September 23rd, 2019 to the end of June 2020.
