The Challenge of Climate Change

The winning video in the 2019 Columban Schools Journalism Competition was produced by Elizabeth Scanlan, a student of Christ the King Girls’ Secondary School, South Douglas Road, Cork City.

The judges were impressed with the creative narrative she used and the quality of her production which she used with effect to drive home the importance of addressing the problem of climate change before it is too late.

In the video section of the competition, the judges awarded second place to:
Kate Gallagher + Róisín Kelly + Hazel Toomey
Salesian College, Copsewood, Pallaskenry, Co Limerick

Third prize was awarded jointly to:
