Kells Youthreach Students Scoop Digital Media Award

May 16, 2016

Kells Youthreach students recently won the overall best project in the “Let’s talk about Drugs” National Media Awards 2016.

Their winning entry was called “Monkey on your Back”. It is a short video chronicling the issues that young people face today around substance abuse and peer pressure.

The ‘Let’s Talk about Drugs’ National Youth Media Awards is an annual competition which encourages discussion of drug-related issues by inviting young people to produce a piece of original content relating to drug and/or alcohol use.

Well done to the students of Kells Youthreach and their music teacher, Enda Burns. This year’s competition was the largest ever with almost 1,000 entries.

The awards ceremony took place at the Department of Education on Tuesday, May 11th and it was hosted by RTE’s Eoghan McDermott. In attendance as well was Love/Hate actor, John O’Connor.
