The competition was run by the Columban Missionary Society and was open to young people 15-18 years old. Two separate strands were held – one for students in Ireland and the other for pupils in Britain. 

The objective was to encourage students to use their journalistic writing and mobile skills to look at a topical issue which is relevant to Catholic Social Teaching and resonates with Columban mission.  Each had two categories, writing and video, and leading journalists in Britain and Ireland judged the entries.  The subject matter recognised the Columbans’ long established advocacy on Climate Change in all 16 countries where they work. 


Congratulations to Oliver and Dillon - 1st Place winners
