Event Description

The theme this year is “Brexit: Ireland’s Opportunity” and is open to entrants who are 18 years or under or those who are 19 years and over. Winners in both categories will receive a prize sponsored by the EU Commission with runner up prizes sponsored by the Europe Direct Information Centre in Blanchardstown.

As capacity is limited, there is a limit of 24 entrants for both age categories. Therefore this will be on a first come, first served basis i.e. the first 24 individuals to register by completing and returning an application form will be accepted for the competition. Email Siobhan Walshe at Siobhan.walshe@fingal.ie or phone 01 – 8905578 to register and get an application form. Forms must be completed and returned by Wednesday 11 October at 5pm at the latest to Siobhan.walshe@fingal.ie

Winners in both categories will also go forward to the National final in Dublin in November with a chance of winning €1000 and a trip to Brussels for 2 people.
