Reporting Competition Winner 25 June 2018

Northern Ireland School scoops top award in International Reporting Competition

Twenty Post Primary Schools from Northern Ireland took part in this year’s Young Reporters for the Environment campaign. The campaign was run in here by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful with support from Wrigley Litter Less and the Foundation for Environmental Education. Students investigated environmental issues ranging from marine plastic pollution to food waste and submitted written, video or photographic entries to the international YRE competition. 

178 entries from 30 different countries around the world submitted entries to the international jury. We are delighted to announce that Wallace High School in Lisburn took first place in the video category 11–14 years. Their excellent entry, focusing on food waste, was submitted by Max and Josh Kamalarajah and impressed the judges with its composition, content and assured delivery. View the video here.

Uilida Integrated College, Carrickfergus, also received two Honourable Mentions for written articles they submitted on the topic of marine plastic. 

Schools came together to celebrate this success at an event in Kilkeel which incorporated environmental and historical talks and a beach clean–up. If you would like more information on the YRE campaign please contact ruth.vanry@keepnorthernirelandbeautiful.org
