And the Winner Is...

 The EHAI are delighted to announce the winner of their 2014 National Calendar Competition.  We received hundreds of entries from around the country and the standard was incredibly high.  After much deliberation Cliona Walker (5th Class, St Michaels National School, Cloonacool, Co. Sligo) was selected as the overall winner and awarded first prize.  As a result St Michaels National School received a 1000 Euro cheque and Cliona herself received a 250 Euro one for all voucher.

The competition was held to commemorate World Environmental Health Day (26th September 2013).  It was open to all 5th and 6th class students of national schools and all transition year students of secondary schools and participants were asked to create a piece of art based on the theme: The Natural Environment - New Threats and Solutions.  Twelve entries were selected by the EHAI to make up a 2014 Calendar, a copy of which was disseminated to all of our business partners and all members of the EHAI as well as the winners and participating schools. 

The aim was to get students to really think about the everyday actions they could take to protect the environment around them.  So much information is bombarded at all of us daily but we hoped that this would help to keep the theme of environmental protection prominent. 

Special mention must be given to the following students whose entries were thought worthy of special merit and were included int he calendar. 

Louise Ni Gallachoir, Corclough National School, Co. Mayo.
Hollie-Eve Cullen Dunne, Scoil Caoimhin Naofa, Co. Wicklow.
Abbie O'Connor and Lauren Kinsella, Our Lady of the Wayside National School, Dublin 12.
Orna Byrne, Scoil Caoimhin Naofa, Co. Wicklow.

It remains for us all in the EHAI to extend our best wishes to all of the pupils who entered and to express our hopes for a distinguished and bright future for all.
