Aspiring young Artists who won prizes from Youghal Credit Union from their Annual Primary School Art Competition gathered on Wednesday evening the 31 January to collect their prizes at Youghal Credit Union. Colm Geary of Youghal Credit Union welcomed the winners and their families with refreshments on the evening. Judge Andrea Cashell presented the prizes and said “ It was difficult in the end to choose the winners as there was some very talented competitors”.
The art competition is held annually and gains huge attention and entries from Credit Union members all around Ireland, over 30,000 entries per year. Each year, the Irish League of Credit Unions chose a different theme for the competition , this years theme was ‘ Set Your Imagination Free ‘. Entrants can draw or paint posters on the theme. The competition is about encouraging and rewarding creativity and imagination among young artists throughout Ireland. The Competition starts at a local level, then to the Chapter level and finally the league level, all of which have a variety of great prizes.
Colm Geary and Youghal Credit Union congratulates all the winners and a big thanks to all those who participated. Best of luck to the three 1st placed winners who will go onto the chapter level.
