Drugs.ie Youth Media Awards Launch 2016

Friday 9thI left school early to attend the launch of the Drugs.ie Media Awards, where I won this iPad last year for winning my age category in the newspaper section. 

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). 


(I arrived late so I had to sneak in at the back). 


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. 





Apr├Ęs ca, it was time for a sleepover at Daniel's in prep for Intel Emgineering the next day.
