Unite the Nations is one of the ONLY international research competitions where the students themselves create the test. They pick those topics and sources of pride to share and invite students around the world to explore and to discover. We really do unite as nations when we share the best of ourselves in this manner in fun loving competition

Congratulations to The High School of Mate Blazina Labin, Labin, Croatia for coming in FIRST in the Unite the Nations event. For the Second Year in a row!

Second the Affiliated High School of Chung-Hsing University, Taichung City, Taiwan

Third Lord Elgin Public School, London, Canada,

Tied for Fourth Gymnazium Praha 4, Postupicka 3150, Prague, Czech Republic and Vaels International School, Chennai, India.

Fifth Gymnasium #41 Novouralsk, Russia 6 Different countries in the TOP 5 ranking – a first for many years.

All top 5 schools scored in the 80% or higher.

Honourable mention to the next 5 schools

Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace Nr VIII, Wroclaw, Poland

Geodetska skola, Zagreb, Croatia

Maria Kononicka Secondary School No 2, Nowy Sacz, Poland

Gimazija Bernardina Frankopana,  Ogulin, Croatia

Sintermeertencollege, Heerlen, The Netherlands.

A special mention to the participating schools from Croatia who despite the National Strike and despite having limited staff, students and time, all passed the test even when some didn’t have time to answer some of the questions. In Addition it is difficult to note that some of our colleagues in Croatia could not find a way to participate this year because of the strike. Remember Time Project Stands with the Educators who because of the complicated issue, choose to protest both inside the schools and on the picket lines. We support our fellow educators.

Congratulations to all of our Unite the Nations Participants and to all TIME SCHOOLS both off and on line for an excellent 24th ANNUAL TIME DAY.

For those teachers in Croatia who came in during off hours to support students who wanted to still participate,  your commitment to education inspires us all.  DURING TIME DAY there is example after example of teachers and students in Croatia going to their schools at midnight and in the early am to participate and then leaving again before the schools officially opened today.  YOUR courage humbles us and your dedication is a beacon of the light of learning for us all. H’vala  vam prijatelji  (thank you my friends)

“We Must Change The World.”



Dear Friends of Time

Welcome Time Ambassadors – November 29th 2019  To Time Day!

For the span of ONE DAY, We call upon the youth of the world to connect on this single day in TIME.  “This Is Our Time” has for 24 years promoted youth connections, cooperation and collaboration through inquiry based education. Topics to be explored this year include Zero Waste, Freedom of the Press, School Strike for Climate.  All topics can be explored through blogs, video conferences and can be debated through a Model United Nations simulation and a House of Commons styled debates. WE will connect face to face and in writing throughout this one amazing DAY IN TIME.   Any of the topics can inspire local social justice ACTION projects that can be shared on Time Day with other Time Schools and Time Headquarters timeproject01@yahoo.ca  SHARE YOUR STORIES. All Time Participants can also connect through participation in our 24 hr research Competition known as Unite the Nations.

Unite the Nations is a test created by youth for youth. To participate students must design questions on behalf of their own country. These multiple choice questions must cover the areas of Arts, History, Geography, Social Issues and Sports. Participating schools must submit 5 multiple choice questions for each category and provide both the answer and an English language website or resource where the answer can legitimately be found. On Time Day the test is released at Midnight 00:00 GMT. Participants have 24 hours to research, find and report back to Time Headquarters their results. No matter how many individual participants you have, each participating school is only permitted one test submission. The race against TIME is on! At Midnight the next day – the test closes. Test results are scored by our volunteers and the results are advertised on the Time Project website, the e-learning environment and their Facebook site.

Take your pictures, write your stories, make your webpages and video mashups. SEND IT ALL TO TIME. Once again from those who design clocks to those who build newspapers to those who would blog for the entire day to our many researchers who now begin their race against TIME and one another, WELCOME TO TIME DAY FALL 2019!

Yours in Time,

Respectfully,

Joe Sheik

Dear Friends Of Time

Welcome to TIME PROJECT 2019

This our 24th year of uniting children around the world is indeed a special one. As the world is filled with uncertainty and mistrust, we have hope because of YOU. You the dedicated educators committed to bringing the world to your students. You the amazing teachers who refuse to let mistrust and intolerance force you to stay within your country. You make the world smaller each day with your efforts and your passion. You teach, you explore, you challenge and you make a difference. Generations of children over 24 years have learned that they can make a difference, that they have a voice, that they deserve to ask more of the world around them. They are taught by you to care to for others, to learn and to know.

On behalf of all of the staff at Time Headquarters, THANK YOU TEACHERS OF TIME…

Enjoy the day , this day , THIS IS OUR TIME…

And let it be known thanks to our dear TIME Partner and Friend Mike Cunningham in Austin Texas USA, has had his City Declare today TIME DAY in Texas…welcome to it my friends.
