Waterford students challenged to get creative for MyEU50

Students in primary, secondary and third levels in Waterford are being challenged to get creative and mark 50 years of Ireland’s EU membership this year.

This challenge is part of a major new competition launched by Taoiseach Micheál Martin.

 An initiative of the Government of Ireland, led by the Department of Foreign Affairs and managed by European Movement Ireland, MyEU50 engages with students to share their creativity and new ideas about Ireland and Europe.

“The future of this country, and of the EU, lies in the hands of our youth. It is therefore fitting that, through the MyEU50 competition, they will get the opportunity to explore and express their relationship with the EU and how they want that to evolve over the next 50 years," Taoiseach Micheál Martin said while launching the project.


Finalists will be invited to attend a ceremony in Dublin in December, where the winning submissions will be announced.

The deadline for submissions for primary and post primary students is November 11th.
