Ponte… nas ondas! started its route in 1994, with the aim of serving as a bridge of communication, on the shore of the Miño river, between Galicia and Portugal. Fundamentally through interstellar radio initiatives and through Internet, on both edges of the border as well as on others Latin American countries.
Since 2002, the participating student body has grown up with the incorporation of university groups. In that way, it was possible to achieve that the experience completes the education variety which goes from the pre-school to the Galician and Portuguese university groups. In the last editions, since 2007 and in collaboration with the channel UVIGO-TV, from the University of Vigo, television emissions were staged via Internet with the production of the participant educativon centres.
On the occasion of the twentieth edition of the project, this year the efforts made by the student body and the teachers during the preparations of the programs will be rewarded for the first time. The awards will be putted on through the Boas Ondas prizes. The best radio programs, divided in 6 categories, will be rewarded: recorded, live, in collaboration with a professional radio station, in video, about any impression of Galician-Portuguese Intangible Heritage and, finally, staged out of the Galicia-North Portugal Euroregion.
