Children from the Savyon-Ganei Yehuda School in Israel won first place at Schoolovision 2013, Saturday night, with the song “I’ll Remind you to Fly.” With lyrics by Betty Bailey, the song was inspired by Ilan Ramon, the first Israeli astronaut, who died during the crash of the space shuttle Columbia in 2003.

Since 2009 primary schools from all over Europe have been taking part in their very own version of the Eurovision contest, entitled Schoolovision. This year, 41 countries took part in this event, which has won several international education awards. Since its inception over 100 entries have been performed by a total of over 400 children.
