Jim Higgins MEP launches Ireland North West National School Poster Competition
Jim Higgins, MEP for Ireland North West has today launched a poster competition for all national school students in the Ireland North West constituency.
The theme of the competition is "THE EU AND YOU." The deadline for entries is the 5th of April
One winner will be selected for each of the 11 counties and then displayed in the European Parliament, Brussels, as part of an exhibition of children's book illustrations by 'Children's Books Ireland', under the auspices of 'Laureate na nÓg'. "As this exhibition is focused on children's literature, I feel that this is a good way, not only to encourage children to get creative but also to engage with the concept of the EU and reading."
