Schools from the north-east will take part in a Scotland-wide project.
They will take part in Euroquiz, which is organised by the Scottish European Educational Trust.
The event hopes to encourage children to expand their knowledge of international affairs while working as part of a team.
Those who are participating will have to prepare by studying resources on a range of topics such as citizenship, current events, geography, world history, culture and languages.
Twelve schools will compete in the Aberdeenshire heat at Hillside School, Portlethen, on March 19 at 9.45am.
Pupils will be in teams of four, with the winners going on to represent their community at the national final.
The final will be held at the Scottish Parliament in May.
