Europe Direct Waterford is delighted to announce that the winner of the Europe Direct National Soapbox Final, in the 19 and over Category, is our own Regional Winner Jen Harris! Gerard Kiely Head of the European Commission took great pleasure in announcing the winners and stressed that the calibre this year was very high despite being in a different format.
The event was online this year where each of the 15 finalists from 8 Europe Direct Centres countrywide, were judged on their three minute videos, to make their case for or against the theme ‘Everyone wants to go back to the pre-Covid way of life’. Jen Harris unanimously convinced the judges with her brilliant entry.
The overall winner of the 18 and under Category is Orla Devlin from Europe Direct Sligo. Well done to Jen Harris and to everyone who entered this year’s regional and final competitions.
