Events of the European Day of Languages

Vote for this year’s most innovative event! 
To add a further element of spice to the Day, anyone visiting the website can vote for what they regard as the most innovative EDL event. This can be due to its creativity, transferability or just because it truly represents the spirit of the Day.  Voting will be open for one month from 20 September – 20 October, with the winner will be announced in December. There will be a small prize for the organizer of the event which receives the most votes.

The 2013 winner was Grabrik Primary School from Croatia. Their event, with the intriguing title "Language fun fair" received over 1000 votes during the voting period. Congratulations to the 2013 winners!
