Who are this year's national winners?

The teams participating at the national level were competing in two categories: in category A (the last two years of upper secondary schools) and in category B (the first two years of upper secondary schools). All teams had to prepare a research paper with an analysis on a dataset about families in Slovenia; some teams were analysing characteristics of families at the national level, while some looked for regional features or local differences. 

According to the evaluation of research papers by the expert jury, the best ranked in category A was the research paper prepared by the team 20IN20 from Gimnazija Kranj and the research paper of the team TRIUMVIRAT from Gimnazija Koper was ranked as the best in category B.  

The winning team of category A: 20IN20 from Gimnazija Kranj

The winning team of category B: TRIUMVIRAT from Gimnazija Koper

According to the public choice, the winning team in category A is the team YOBAMA from Gimnazija Želimlje and in category B the team TEGLZAROŽE from Gimnazija Franca Miklošiča Ljutomer.

The public choice winning team of category A: YOBAMA from Gimnazija Želimlje

The public choice winning team of category B: TEGLZAROŽE from Gimnazija Franca Miklošiča Ljutomer

The expert jury also declared the second and third ranked teams in each category. In category A these are the team RADOVEDNI from Gimnazija Lava and the team FREKVENCA from Prva gimnazija Maribor; in category B these are the team USPEŠNE from Gimnazija Želimlje and the team DNA from Gimnazija Novo mesto

All teams mentioned above will be awarded for their achievements as well as one of the voters who participated in the public choice; the latter has already been selected by a draw and will receive an award.

What about the European phase of the competition?

For all four winning teams, the competition will normally continue at the European level, but due to the current situation in Slovenia and in 16 other participating European countries this will not be possible according to the planned schedule. Uncertain circumstances do not allow us to predict when we will be able to start with the European part of the competition. We will inform all Slovenian teams participating in the European Finals about the further course of the competition as soon as possible. All relevant information in this regard will also be published on our website and other information channels. 

We congratulate all competitors for their achievements!
