What is Owlypia?

Owlypia is an exciting international competition for students aged 9-11 (OWLINS), aged 12-14 (OWLETS) and 15-18 (OWLYS). Owlypia aims to inspire intellectual curiosity in every young mind and has a central theme each year. Owlypia was founded in 2017 by Perceptum Education, a certified Social Enterprise based in London, UK. In Owlypia, students can participate in three competitions:

  • Owlypia Online
  • Owlypia Locals (Onsite / Virtual)
  • Owlypia Globals (Onsite / Virtual)

And as Horizon International School we are honoured to host the Owlypia Locals Virtual

By participating in the Owlypia competitions in five different subject areas, young intellectuals share their creative ideas, develop their multi-disciplinary academic skills, unlock their potential, build self- confidence, develop collaborative teamwork skills and create new friendships.

Owlypia has five subjects, which are Social Sciences, Art & Design, Literature & Culture, Science & Technology and Economics & Business. If you enjoy thinking, writing and talking in a social and academically stimulating environment then, this is the challenge for you!

Our Story

Owlypia is rooted in the desire to give young people a chance to grow and develop as individuals in every capacity. We believe that young and inquisitive minds should be given the opportunity to expand their knowledge and share their ideas in a stimulating environment, which is exactly what the Owlypia is all about!

Why Owlypia?

Across the world, owls are a symbol of intelligence, perspective, brilliance, wisdom, knowledge and independence. We believe that this intriguing nocturnal bird also inspires knowledge and wisdom, bringing mysteries out of the dark. Our mascot represents these qualities and joins our Owlypians on every step of their journey.
