Guidelines for Jury Evaluation
The criteria below (in no particular order) make up the foundation of the Jury’s evaluation of the delegations during the National Session. This year the Jury is selecting 15 schools and 10 individuals to
represent the European Youth Parliament España (EYPE) in International Sessions, International Forums,
National Sessions and Regional Sessions across Europe. Out of these 15 schools and 10 individuals, 4
schools and 2 individuals have been selected to attend International Sessions.
From this moment on, all the delegates listed below are now members of the European Youth Parliament
España and therefore can and are encouraged to attend events held by this National Committee.
Nonetheless, it has to be remarked that these members will only gain full rights (right to vote in the
board elections, right of certain initiatives, right to apply as officials, etc.) once:
A) They have attended their assigned session.
B) If it is the case that a delegate hasn’t been able to attend his or her assigned session, they will
also become members will full rights of the EYPE, once a calendar year has passed since the issue
of this selection report.
The Jury wants to emphasise that the status of their membership does not depend on the type of session
that they have been selected to (International Session, International Forum, National Session or Regional
Session). Having been selected as an individual or as a school delegation is also irrelevant to the status
of their membership.
All of those who have participated, and however were not selected but would like to become part of EYP
Spain, would be able of doing so by contacting the National Committee a month after the issue of this
jury report. This contact is to be done by sending a motivation letter expressing the interest to become
part of the National Committee through a written email to [email protected] All of the information regarding
non-selection access can be found in the Ordenamiento de Vías de Entrada de EYP España.
Criteria used in the Selection Process
1. Knowledge and socio-political awareness
The Jury must evaluate the delegates’ understanding of current political and social structures and their
knowledge on European institutions. Awareness on current affairs is highly valued.
2. Use of English
Delegates representing Spain in sessions abroad require a good level of English that allows them to express themselves correctly and fluently.
3. Motivation and participation
The delegates should show motivation, team spirit and initiative during the session. It is also considered
important that they maintain a positive and respectful attitude towards one another. Full participation in
the activities of the session is also extremely important.
4. Open mindedness and cooperation
It is important that delegates can work constructively in a team, showing respect towards other students
and being able to be tolerant towards different opinions. Appropriate behaviour during the session is also
very highly valued.
5. Evolution throughout the session
The EYP is a platform for personal and academic development. For this reason, the Jury highly regards
delegates who challenge themselves and progress throughout the session.
6. Preparation for the session
Delegates are meant to have conveyed research prior to the session and have informed themselves on
their topic, towards the well-functioning of Committee Work.
The Jury may contact the Chairs Team for further information on this point.

Ranking of Individuals
Apart from the aforementioned selection criteria, the Jury established the individuals’ list based on the
a) When the school delegation has been selected (but not for an International Session – IS) and the Jury
still believes that a particular delegate is outstanding and deserves a special recognition. This
criterion was especially relevant when choosing the first two individuals, as they will also represent the
EYPE in International Sessions.
b) When the school delegation has not been selected, and the Jury still considers that the selected individual fulfils all the selection criteria. This happens when the school team was not balanced enough, but the
Jury appreciates the potential in one of the delegates.
As mentioned before, the first two individuals will be invited to participate in International Sessions.The
rest of the individuals selected in this list will be invited to International Forums or National
Sessions based on availability of spots.
