Schools from around the world participated in this great challenge, initiated by JCAP-JEC to celebrate our roots by showing in a creative, original, and fun way what best makes our schools Ignatian.

The challenge was to film a video in the style of the Mannequin Challenge. The Mannequin Challenge is a viral internet video style where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a moving camera documents the scene.

25 videos – 12 countries – 4 regions. Schools from Albania, Italy, Philippines, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Brazil, East Timor, India, China, Spain and Australia and Ecuador participated. The video from Ecuador did not make it in time to receive any votes, but please do check it out, it’s the last video on the page. Click here to see all participating videos.

Each representation of their school’s Ignatian Character is unique and fun to watch.
