We are pleased to announce the winners of the euRathlon Story Challenge. It was not easy to select the winners from among all the high quality submissions, but after hard deliberation this is the decision of the jury:
1st prize for Joana Recolons (GRUP ESCOLES MATARO)– for a story that nicely takes forward the idea of a turn of events in the competition that changes the mock disaster scenario into a real emergency, with a successful intervention of the robots.

2nd prize for Víctor Pi (GRUP ESCOLES MATARO)– for a story that highlights collaborative work between robots, which is a central idea of Eurathlon.

3rd prize for Aida Ponce (GRUP ESCOLES MATARO)– for a story in which a robot that acquires human-like intelligence, uses it in a helpful way rather than the typical hostile and destructive stories we keep getting in popular culture.
