Local students representing region in One Good Idea Competition

Primary school students from Castlerahan will represent the region at today’s Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland One Good Idea Competition today.

The two teams have successfully made it to the final by creating a 1 minute film on their chosen topic, and today have presented a 3 minute PowerPoint presentation to a panel of judges in the hopes of making it to the National Finals later this year.
