St Patrick’s Day schools competition - ''Tell us your Irish story''

The Mayor of London in association with Tourism Ireland and Bord Bia has launched a competition to celebrate St Patrick's Day and raise young Londoners' awareness of Ireland.

The Mayor of London in association with Tourism Ireland and Bord Bia has launched a competition to celebrate St Patrick's Day and raise young Londoners' awareness of Ireland. Competition entries should be on the theme of 'Tell us your Irish story'.

Children can win one of three cash prizes up to £5,000 for their school or a family holiday to Ireland!
 
One in four Londoners has an Irish grandparent, so there should be plenty of tales to tell. No Irish family connections? It doesn't matter. Why not encourage children to research ideas online, contact Irish organisations/speak to members of the Irish community for inspiration.
 
The competition is open to schools and individual primary and secondary students from Year 5 upwards can enter. Children should produce an entry inspired on the theme of 'tell us your Irish story' in the form of a book, short film, play, poem or song. The deadline for entries is Friday 4 March 2011
 
Prizes will be presented on the main stage at the FREE St Patrick's Day Festival at Trafalgar Square on Sunday 13 March 2011. For full information about the competition and the festival please visit www.london.gov.uk/stpatricksday/schools
