A Level student Anna Corsà wins the LCI Barcelona prize for Best Research Project for her work on fashion
By Judith Vives
A vocation is something that often arises when we are young. When a boy or girl appears who shows a special interest and capacity for a subject, it’s important to take hold of it and feed his or her dream so it becomes a reality.
This is the aim of the LCI Barcelona centre with its prize for the Best A Level Research Project, which this year has been awarded to the young Anna Corsà for work related to the creation of a fashion collection.
El Premio LCI Barcelona al Mejor Trabajo de Investigación de Bachillerato 2017/2018, dotado con 3000€, fue para el proyecto "CIRCUS" de Anna Corsà. Su Escuela, @dainaisard, recibió un lote de libros de la @editorialgg valorado en 200€. Más información: https://t.co/H8EILGx518. pic.twitter.com/nTBpyvDRIa

The objective of the contest is to promote vocations linked to the world of design, be it graphic design, interior design, or fashion or product design, and also to promote innovation and foster students’ creative talent.
This time, the student awarded was Anna Corsà, from the Daina Isard Institute. In her work, Anna created a fashion collection based on artistic creations of pre-school children that have a circus theme.

The award jury, formed by the Director of Pedagogy and the Heads of Area of the School, took into account the rigour, the research method that Anna Corsà built, and the contribution of the chosen theme. They also valued the structure, approach, theoretical foundations and conclusions of the project.
Anna received a prize of 3000 euros for her Circus project. The endowment is for a cultural purpose and the student herself will decide what her prize is used for.
In addition, the Daina Isard Institute where the young woman studied was also awarded. Specifically, the centre received a selection of books from the publisher Gustavo Gili valued at 200 euros.
The awards ceremony was held within the framework of the IX Conference of Educational Centres, which brought together education and orientation professionals from Catalonia, for whom LCI Barcelona offered a workshop aimed at providing tools that can be used in the classroom.
During this event, the studies offered by LCI Barcelona were also presented, all of them related to design. In addition, free activities and workshops offered by LCI Barcelona to A Level and / or Higher Vocational Training students were also offered.
