Westmeath in environmentalist final

Young people from St Joseph’s Secondary School Rochfortbridge and Moate Community School were jubilant this week upon hearing that their respective biodiversity and eco-art and design action projects were among the 75 submissions from across the island of Ireland shortlisted for ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards Showcase and Ceremony in the Mansion House on May 20.

While the groups (two from Moate and one from Rochfortbridge ) are now preparing for the final and hoping to impress the judges enough to scoop one of the 10 category prizes, they are also seeking the public’s support with their projects.

Until May 14, these young environmentalists are looking for the public’s vote to help them lay claim to the prestigious ECO-UNESCO Young Environmentalist People’s Choice Award.

The public can now vote for their favourite project on www.ecounesco.ie
