TY students essay competiiton

THE Seanad has decided to endorse an initiative to hold a national essay challenge for transition year students. The challenge is open to all students currently in transition year.

Entries are now being accepted in two areas. The first of which is a written essay that should be in the form of a speech that the student would give to Seanad Éireann on one of two topics. The speech will be not less than 500 words and not more than 750 words.

The second option is a video essay that should be in the form of a speech that the student would give to Seanad Éireann on one of two topics. The speech will be not less than 90 seconds in length and not more than 120 seconds in length.

The two topics are ‘Do you think the Leaving Certificate prepares you for life?’ and ‘The challenges that face Ireland and does my future lie here?’

A shortlist of entries will be chosen and those students will be invited to attend an event in Seanad Éireann in Spring 2013.

The closing date for receipt of essays is Friday January 25, 2013 at 12pm.
