St Louis Kiltimagh students up for People’s Choice Award

Young people in St Louis Community School Kiltimagh were jubilant this week upon hearing that their waste eco-action projects is among the 75 submissions from across the Republic and Northern Ireland shortlisted for ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards Showcase and Ceremony in the Mansion House on May 20. While the group 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 project. 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 People’s Choice Award is one category that is out of the judges’ hands, with the public having all the power! The 75 shortlisted projects range from creating biodiversity trails, delivering environmental workshops in schools and setting up a ‘city farm’ to harvest crops and cut down on food miles. The public can now vote for their favourite project on www.ecounesco.ie

Speaking about the People’s Choice Awards, national director of ECO-UNESCO Elaine Nevin commented; “The work put into all of these finalists’ projects has been enormous. While the judges will have their say on the category winners, this is an excellent opportunity for the public to get involved with the Young Environmentalist Awards and lend support to their favourite eco-action project of 2014. The public are certainly spoiled for choice in choosing a favourite this year and I wish all of the finalists the very best of luck.”
