Videos putting the spotlight on disability, designed to mobilise all higher education institutions (high schools, universities, University Institutes of Technology, engineering and business schools, Apprentice Training Centres, etc.), to encourage disabled school students to go on to further education and to change attitudes towards disability
Saint-Denis, 2 March 2016 – SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest, which has been a partner of the TREMPLIN Études-Handicap-Entreprises [Study-Disability-Business] association since 2010, is supporting the Tous HanScène® competition this year. The objective of this fourth season, launched last November, is again to raise awareness of disability issues among the student community and to bring disabled and able-bodied people together to work on a common project.
The rules of the competition are simple: put together teams of 2-4 students or members of the administration of higher education establishments and “put the spotlight on disability” by producing a short film of 2-3 minutes which will be voted on by the general public and by partner companies, with lots of prizes to be won.
Since 17 February, the videos have been available for all to view on the website www.toushanscene.fr/r/votes_spie for the second phase of the competition, which is the public vote. Internet users have until 23 March to vote for the best films highlighting disability in one of six categories: culture, studies, employment, humour, sport and daily life.
The film with the most votes and views will be awarded the public prize at a grand awards ceremony to be held at the UGC Ciné Cité Paris 19 multiplex on 29 March.
As a partner company, SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest is inviting its employees and those of the SPIE group to support this creative initiative by voting for their three favourite films in the “humour” category.
“Initiatives like Tous HanScène® make it possible, through the eyes of the young, to change attitudes to disability”, explains Hélène Chaze, the disability project officer of SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest. “An event like this, a few weeks ahead of SPIE disability month, gives us a different way of raising the awareness of all our employees and of linking in to our ongoing commitment to diversity. We also want it to serve as a reminder that through our school-business relationship and our actions in support of disability, we are contributing to the professional integration of young people.”
- The public prize will be awarded to the video achieving the highest score from the vote and the number of views across all categories.
- The jury prizes will be awarded by the TREMPLIN Études-Handicap-Entreprises jury to the best video in each category.
- The TREMPLIN prizes for “organisational mobilisation” will go to the three establishments that manage to mobilise the largest number of voters within their own organisation (students, teachers, administrative personnel).

Set up in 1992 by four major groups and supported today by over 200 businesses based in France, TREMPLIN Études-Handicap-Entreprises is managed by five of those businesses: DCNS, GENERALI, HSBC, IMB and SPIE. The association has four major objectives: 1. To encourage disabled school students across France to go on to higher education. 2. To prepare them throughout their studies for their future professional integration through individualised support. 3. To work with and support training establishments and their student associations in their activities to promote disability and disabled students. 4. To support businesses in implementing specific actions to welcome, train and integrate disabled school students into their various establishments and activities. In addition to individualised support for each young person, TREMPLIN Études-Handicap-Entreprises organises forums for young people and businesses on the theme of work-study schemes, recruitment, placements and summer jobs. The ultimate aim is to provide a direct, specific and positive response to the laws of 10 July 1987 and 11 February 2005, by helping to develop the qualifications and professional experience of disabled school students, in order to achieve greater school, professional and social integration.
