As a student-centred association, COBIS coordinates and delivers, with the generous support of host schools, Supporting Members and partner organisations, a number of student events, competitions, and awards.
Celebrating student achievement and success is a key feature of COBIS membership and all these events, competitions, and awards are designed for the benefit of students across the global COBIS network, and are available to all in COBIS schools.
COBIS are inviting Supporting Members and other organisations to submit proposals for student programmes that bring expertise and new opportunities to COBIS schools through meaningful partnerships. If you are interested in working with COBIS to develop and deliver a student event or competition, please read our Student Engagement Partnership Guide, using the link below.
