Abbey College students James Bolger, Luke Connelly and Cillian Doyle have won the junior section with their One Good Idea Project “Change The Future” at the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland awards in Dublin Castle today.
They also received €150 each while their school gets €1500
Their project “Change The Future” had been shortlisted for inclusion in the top 20 entries in the national final run by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
As part of their project they had to visit local primary schools promoting energy awareness and create a blog which featured a daily interesting fact and thus encourage their local community to make lifestyle changes to protect and sustain our planet.
Initially there were over 500 entries from schools around the country, so to be included in the final 20 is a great achievement.
