Green-Schools are delighted to launch the Green-Schools Irish Water Poster & Video Competition 2023. This exciting competition is open to students in Green-Schools working on the Water theme or who have already been awarded the Green Flag for Water – please note that the Video Competition Category is open to Secondary Schools only.  

The theme for this year’s competition is “Local Water Actions for Global Change”. We have put together a fact sheet with information about this topic to help inspire students as they design their posters and storyboard their videos; you can download the factsheet from the link below. Each year the Green-Schools Water team are blown away by the creativity and talent of the entrants – and we can’t wait to see what you come up with this year! 

Schools may enter a maximum of 10 entries per category. We suggest that you initially run an in-school competition to determine the entries you wish to submit, as this will link to Step Six of the Green-Schools programme: Involving and Informing.  

For the full details on how to enter, please read the Terms and Conditions. Entries must be received by the deadline of Friday 10th March, 2023.
