Cavan Monaghan Science Festival 2018 Schools Poster Competition
Cavan and Monaghan County Councils are joining forces and hosting a range of events during the Cavan Monaghan Science Festival from 10th-24th of November 2018.
The objectives of the festival are to increase the awareness and visibility of science in our society, promote the importance of science for economic growth, to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) at a local/regional level and to show that STEM is fun, educational and social.
Primary and post primary schools were invited to enter a poster competition to raise awareness in terms of water quality in our rivers and lakes including protecting our rivers and lakes from water pollution. This year’s theme was Plastic Pollution.
The winning entrants receive a Samsung tablet and an outdoor event/school trip will be organised for the class/school depending on class size. The winning posters will be displayed on a billboard in Monaghan during Science Week 2018 to raise awareness about the Science Festival and water quality,
The Post-primary school winner is Dolores Pasagic of Castleblayney College, Castlebalyney, Co. Monaghan.
