The event was on in the Department of Education and attended by the organisers, some past winners including me, some people from the HSE and the Ana Liffey Drug Trust, parents, probably politicians, and Miriam O Callaghan (TV presenter).
We listened to speeches explaining the inspiration behind the competition and heard some past winners explain how they created their entries, then watched some of he winning videos. That was pretty fun. Then I was called over for photos with Miriam and then with the other winners (which I have not yet received), then we went and got food from the buffet and socialised. I'm a big fan of the spring rolls and sausage rolls they had at the awards in April. I had an interesting chat with someone from the HSE about drug policy.
It was over a lot sooner than expected.
The competition has just opened for entries and will close in late January (it closed in March last year), so definitely consider entering. I learned a lot and won this wonderful ipad, and if you do really well you could even win €2000.
Après ca, it was time for a sleepover at Daniel's in prep for Intel Emgineering the next day.
