EU Celebrates ten years of the euro with the Eurocompetition!

The Eurocompetition, an online poster design competition for school children between 10 and 14 years of age living in the euro area and Slovakia
are invited to join in the euro's 10-year celebrations by designing a poster on the theme "10 years of EMU and the euro" and uploading it to the online gallery .

The posters should express the participants’ thoughts on what the euro has done for European citizens, what the benefits of the monetary union are and what they think the future holds for the single currency.
Visitors to the Eurocompetition website can also receive the Euro Kid’s Corner poster, a promotional poster available in the 12 languages of the euro area and Slovakia.

Growing up with the euro: how does it feel to be part of the euro generation?

This age group is the first which have had the euro for most of their lives. Many won’t remember what life was like with a whole array of national currencies, and may not realise the impact the euro has had on our daily lives and for the EU as a whole.
They are therefore encouraged to discuss in class the changes which the single currency has brought about, and express their ideas in the form of a poster.

Learning what the euro is and what it has achieved

1. The Eurocompetition website provides materials for teachers to connect their history, geography or even language lessons with the euro, EMU and the economics underlying it.

2. The competition is expected to stimulate debate about the euro within the classroom, and with parents and peers.

3.The debates should raise awareness of the changes the euro has triggered in our daily life, and also encourage thinking about the benefits of a single currency.

 How does it work?
All the posters will be displayed in the website gallery, where they are shared with visitors from across Europe.
The competition is open from 15 September until 31 December 2008. An expert jury will select 16 national winners, who will each be awarded with a digital camera and the chance to have their poster printed and displayed by the European Commission at an exhibition in Brussels. From these 16 an overall winner will be selected. A special prize – yet to be unveiled – will be awarded.

However, there are more EU propaganda efforts to corrupt our kids
New Europe 22 Sept. 2008: The European Parliament launched its own media outlet EuroparlTV last week with much fanfare on its premises with its Editorial Charter promising, “The channel shall ensure that the plurality of opinion in the European Parliament is reflected.“
I actively participated in the preparation of the Europarl TV last year, making four months of pilot productions.” On the content, VRT journalist Heirbaut said, “For journalists, I don’t think it is a useful tool, at the moment.  For schools on the other hand, it is very useful: it ‘ll make teaching about the EU and parliament a lot easier and more attractive. But will the broad public find its way to the website? I doubt it.”

EU Parliament sept. 19, 2008  Anyone with internet access will now be able to watch a wide range of clips and videos based around the life of the Parliament. Four different channels concentrate on different audiences:
1.Your Parliament will inform those with a particular interest in politics, 
2. Your Voice 
provides for interactivity by featuring user-generated content on issues like immigration and climate change,
3. Young Europe aims at school-aged children and
4. Parliament Live
continuous coverage of live events in the Parliament.

Comment: This is to be  EU´s own filtered  propaganda for "ignorant Europeans"
 During the launch , Francis Jacobs, Head of the European Parliament Office in Ireland, pointed out that "The recent referendum, and the surveys have shown that the level of knowledge about the European Union and its institutions remains at a very low level. The main purpose of EuroparltTV is to help reduce that knowledge gap.

The Economist 18 Sept.2008: The most significant finding of all in the Irish Eurobarometer research: most voters have a limited appetite for information about the EU.
This is the key message of the Irish vote. The public does not want to understand the fiendish complexity of the EU. Many in the EU establishment draw a simple conclusion from that: never ask voters directly about something as complicated as a treaty.To many Eurocrats, voter indifference is something to be managed, rather than feared.

Comment While knowing the goal of the EU is the world republic via the Union for the Mediterranean we here see a new aspecct: One of the means to achieve this goa is the Euro put on a pedestal and worshipped like a god - although the Europeans want this "god" and his masters to go back to where they come from - deep below.

What is even worse: This disgusting idolatry is enforced upon defenseless children as a means to guide them into the New World Order society. This is equivalent to what the Nazis did, having Hitler´s 3. Reich as their goal and the swastica as its symbol of worshipping Hitler´s New World Order/ Neuordnung Europa.

Well, this of course comes at the same time as the efforts by the EU in the same direction by the "Year of Intercultural Dialogue" and the permanent endeavours to corrupt our youth, through the Anna Lindh Foundation, and through sport
