Congratulations to the Regional Winners of this year’s Europe Direct Soapbox Competition. The Waterford winners received their prizes this week of iPads from Libraries Ireland.
Pictured with their teacher Patrick O’ Dwyer are Ross Anderson and Shane Burke from Dungarvan CBS, Co. Waterford.
The National Soapbox competition is run through seven Europe Direct Centres based in public libraries throughout Ireland and is an initiative of the European Commission Representation in Ireland. The competition always showcases a unique mix of views on the topic and reminds us that debate and discussion remain at the heart of European democracy.
Europe Direct Waterford is part of a community of 424 Europe Direct centres around Europe. Their purpose is to reinforce the important connection between the EU institutions and citizens, providing timely and factual information on European matter and events while coordinating with other EU networks in the region to ensure easier local access to information for citizens, organisations and businesses. Europe Direct Waterford is run from Central Library in Waterford City.
