There is time until May 31 for five other schools to win

The competition awards prizes to different schools each quarter and is still active until May 31, 2022. In the second quarter, the games are still open to schools in the municipalities that have not yet won: just activate the digital services that Ascotrade offers for free to dispose of . The resulting points are distributed between primary schools, public and equal, in the municipality of residence of the person who activated the service. It is possible to indicate a preferred school, in which case the points awarded are fivefold. According to the regulation, published on the website on the page dedicated to Ascotrade, no more than one school in the same municipality can be allocated in the current school year.
