The PuntuEus Foundation, in collaboration with the Euskaltel and Dinahosting Foundation, has held the first edition of the Kaixomundua.eus competition. The educational project and competition Kaixomundua.eus, aimed at the school community, aims to promote knowledge of digital skills by learning to create websites. In addition, the project aims to promote the creation of digital content in Basque.
During the 2019-2020 academic year, there were 225 groups enrolled in the project. In total, almost 700 students have developed their projects in order to participate in the contest for the best web of each category. However, the health emergency situation of the Covid-19 has forced many schools to adapt to the new situation and with them the Kaixomundua.eus competition has also had to make their deadlines more flexible. For this reason, many of the educational centers that started on this first edition have not managed to deliver their work.
A game to promote gender equality, the proposal to measure the pollution of Zalla and the project that offers web services are the winners and winners of the 2019-2020 edition of the Kaixomundua.eus contest. Together with them, a jury made up of experts, researchers and professionals wanted to make a special mention of the Euskera-Spanish dictionary project.
The winners of the first 2019-2020 edition of the Kaixomundua.eus competition are:

The goal is twofold: on the one hand, students can move from digital consumers to digital creators and on the other, they will have the opportunity to develop digital skills. In addition, the competition aims to reinforce the training of teachers who need technological training.
