What are the eligibility requirements?
We want to make it a celebration for everyone who makes a farewell gift for groep 8. To be able to do that, we have established rules and agreements to make sure everything runs smoothly:

  • Participation is only possible with creations that are, or have been, made in the Jilster makerspace;
  • Participation can only be with a magazine about and for the benefit of the farewell of groep 8 in school year 2022-2023;
  • The creation does not involve controversial content and is specifically intended as a gift for the students and parents of groep 8. All nominations will be checked for content before actual nomination;
  • Participation can only be per class, in case of combined classes with a joint magazine, the school can only participate once;
  • In the case of different magazines from the same school, they may participate multiple times;
  • The provincial prize consists of a party box for a class of children of up to 30 people;
  • The grand prize consists of tickets to Disneyland Paris for up to 30 people, excluding accommodation expenses;
  • The school with the highest score in the province wins the party package;
  • At the end of the final round, the numbers of votes are counted for each school. These are converted to a ranking of the total number of schools, this is the score the voting audience gives the school;
  • At the end of the final round, the professional jury also gives a ranking per school. The three members each give an individual ranking and therefore a score to the school;
  • The expert jury judges the overall magazine on the uniformity of the design, the way the stories of the class are described and the feeling the magazine gives in general;
  • The four different rankings are added together, and the school on the highest ranking wins the prize.
  • Each person who supports you can only vote once with a legitimate email address.
