2021 Project Entries
Entries for 2021 are now closed.
Information regarding the results and prizegiving will be communicated to Teachers by the start of May.
Best of luck to everyone who has entered this year!
Important Documents before you submit your project
Individual consent forms must be submitted for each student (whether an individual or group entry) and for the supporting teacher taking part. Unfortunately, any project submitted without the accompanying consent forms, completed in full for each person involved, cannot be considered.
Be sure to review the information sheet before submitting your entry!
Sample Marking Rubric
Here is a sample marking rubric that was used in a past YEOTY Competiton. Whilst there is no guarantee the exact same rubric will be used this year, you can bet it will be very similar! Be sure to double check your project has 'ticked all the boxes' before submitting!
FAQ (Please read before submitting)
What should be included on the title page of the project?
The title page/start of the project must include:
the name of the project,
the year group of the students that did the project
the name(s) of the student(s) that authored the project
The project should NOT include:
the name of the school
the name of the mentoring teacher.
These details are recorded in the submission form and should not appear on the project in the interests of ensuring anonymity and fairness in the marking and judging process.
Do you need a consent form for everyone in the group?
Yes - if there is more than one person that took part in your entry than you must include a consent form for each person. The teacher consent form (included in the same document as the student consent form).
Does the student or teacher upload the project?
Either! It's up to you! When you complete the form, a copy of the form will be emailed to the person who completed the form. We advise that if the teacher fills in the form then they forward the email receipt to the student(s) that wrote the project and vice versa
I made a YouTube Video/Prezi/Powtoon etc. How can I upload this?!
Put the link on to a word document and upload the word document into the Submission Form.
Remember, if its a YouTube video it needs to be set to Public or Unlisted. If you have it as Private we won't be able to see it!
My project won't upload, what do I do!!!
Don't worry, take a deep breath and relax! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and explain the issue you are having. The more information you can give us, the more likely we will be able to help you solve the issue nice and quick! If you can send us screenshots of the problem, even better!
Once you email us, don't worry, we will reply, but please bear with us, there are usually lots of questions emailed in the lead up to the deadline, so we might be a little slow to reply, but we will get back to you, don't worry!
I have a question, but its not listed here!
Then send us an email with your question: email@example.com. One of the team will get back to you as soon as they can!
You never know, if its a really good question, then it might even get added here!
