The Tax Agency delivers the 2021-2022 awards of the national competition for schools
The Tax Agency has delivered the prizes to the winning and finalist students of the 2021-2022 national competition for schools, a competition that the Agency has been holding annually within the framework of its Civic-Tax Education Program and which is now resuming after the competition held in 2019, before the health crisis. The awards have been granted in the three existing modalities: 'Editing' for Third Cycle of Primary and ESO-Baccalaureate-FP students, and 'Advertising Piece' for ESO-Baccalaureate-FP students.
The three winning students, students who last year attended Primary and ESO in centers in Ávila and Pontevedra, received, like the finalists, the prizes in an event attended by family members and teachers. After the awards were presented by the Secretary of State, Jesús Gascón, and the general director of the Tax Agency, Soledad Fernández Doctor, the schoolchildren read and presented their works, chosen from among those previously selected by the different territorial delegations of the Agency. .
The winning and finalist works are published on the AEAT Civic-Tax Education Program Portal.
The holding of the contest is part of a series of measures that aim to reinforce the Civic-Tax Education Program that the Agency has been developing since 2003 and that it plans to intensify and develop, in accordance with the 2020-2023 Strategic Plan.
The programme includes the participation of civil servants, who give talks to pupils in their last years of primary school and secondary school, vocational training and university students. The programme's activities, carried out in schools and education centres, also include training courses for teachers and open days for schools at the 52 regional delegations of the Tax Agency.
Last year, 255 trainers from the different territorial delegations of the AEAT have given more than 2,500 hours of training to more than 53,000 students, thus exceeding the training capacity prior to the reduction in this activity that occurred in 2020 and 2021 as consequence of the COVID-19 health crisis.
The objective of these talks is to explain to young people the social meaning of paying taxes and their correspondence with public spending, as well as the damage that tax fraud represents for society as a whole.
By incorporating tax and civic education content into the school curriculum, the initiative hopes to encourage young people to develop a sense of civic responsibility. The works selected for this national competition incorporate these messages and show the need for an ethical correspondence between personal interests and common benefits in a society.
