The EuropaQuiz competition was launched to coincide with the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union (31 July to 31 December 2015) and to raise awareness of Luxembourg's role in the EU.
The competition is open to residents of the 28 European Union Member States. The aim is to raise awareness about European integration and the specific role played by Luxembourg in that process, and to provide a testbed for the design of innovative digital tools for knowledge transfer. The quiz is based on the idea of applying gaming techniques to educational resources on the European integration process.
Anyone wishing to take part in the competition can sign up at any point between 3 July and 31 December 2015. Each day, the participants will be invited to answer a multiple-choice question. The questions are based on eight different themes:
- Milestones in the European integration process
- Luxembourg and European integration
- Architects of Europe
- Places in Europe
- European symbols
- European institutions
- European policies
- Europe today
The top prize is a trip to Cape Verde (from Luxembourg) for two people. Other prizes include Interrail passes, spa breaks, digital cameras, etc.
