It could be interesting to celebrate not only one event but a “celebration week”. I propose a competition of “best picture of our history” and to create an exhibition with all the presented pictures. The contest could be settled in these terms: * Every member of the University can take part in the competition with one photo, the most significant one of his/her time at our institution. * There will be a period of three months during the next year to submit pictures, until two weeks before the “celebration week”.
* The exhibition will be established through the corridors, in order to create a festive atmosphere. * There will be a jury (formed by the two oldest teachers and two members of administration) to choose the winner. * The award will consist of the publication of the picture in the local newspaper to commemorate the 20th anniversary. On the closing day, there will be a traditional ceremony with a speech from our headmaster followed by a video projection of the most relevant events of the institution since its beginning.
Although it is not easy to plan the perfect event, I think the contest, exhibition and speech, creates a festive atmosphere and helps to involve all members of University in the event.
