Winners of our 2023 Euroscola Competition
We are delighted to announce the winners of our Euroscola competition on the topic ‘European Elections: Democracy in Action. The winning schools will travel to the European Parliament in Strasbourg in Spring 2024 to represent Ireland at Euroscola.
In this year’s Euroscola competition we asked students to create a one-minute video clip explaining what they would do to increase voter turnout and how they would encourage more young people to vote in the European elections in June 2024.
One winning school was selected from each of Ireland's three European constituencies. Another three schools were highly commended. The winning students will travel to the European Parliament in Strasbourg and experience a day as an MEP. They will join their peers from across Europe, engaging in the EU decision-making process through debates, negotiating with their colleagues, voting and adopting resolutions on topical European issues.
We would like to thank everyone who participated and congratulate all the students for their hard work and effort in what was a very close competition. We hope you had as much fun making the videos as we did watching them!

MIDLANDS-NORTH-WEST: Errigal College, Windyhall, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal
