Ryan Tubridy to judge children’s Climate Change essay writing competition
Good luck to all those entering.
Climate change is a topic on everyone's mind lately, particularly the next generation.
Throughout the country and across the globe students have been holding school strikes in a bid to get our world leaders to take greater action when it comes to tackling climate change.
World Vision Ireland is calling on teachers, parents and children across the country to enter their Climate Change Essay Competition, which will be judged by Ryan Tubridy.
I've seen so many homes and schools across the country start to make small changes when it comes to sustainability to help combat climate change and pollution.
World Vision Ireland’s Climate Change essay competition 2020 is opened until March 31 for children between the ages of eight and 18.
Entries will be narrowed down to the final ten, and celebrity judge Ryan Tubridy will choose the winning essay.
The winner will get the chance to meet Ryan Tubridy in the RTE studios and will also win a €500 Smyths voucher.
Entry cost is €2 per essay and should be sent to World Vision Ireland, The Mews, Garland House, Rathmines Park, Dublin 6.
Essays should be entitled ‘How We Can Save Our Planet’ and be 800 words or less in length. Children should write their name, age and school address on the top corner of the essay.
All proceeds will go to World Vision Ireland, a child-focused international humanitarian aid charity.
Climate change is a hugely important issue and I think it's more crucial than ever now that children get involved in the conversation as they will have to deal with the consequences of pollution and climate change for much longer than we do.
Any teachers, parents or children interested in finding out more and maybe even entering the World Vision essay writing competition can find all the details on the World Vision Ireland website.
