Congratulations to St. Anne’s secondary school students, Rachel Daly and Aoife O’Dwyer, who have reached the Southern final of the Junk Kouture competition 2014.

There were 2,500 entries this year into the competition and 80 entries were chosen for the four regions. Rachel and Aoife will attend the Southern final in the University Concert Hall Limerick on Friday, March 14 where twenty entries will be chosen from each region to attend the Grand final in the Bord Gais Theatre in Dublin in May.

“In order to reach the grand final there is an on line voting system which is worth 10% of the overall result. The idea is to give the entries some exposure to the general public and to carry the message of, ‘Re-Use-Re Cycle-Re-Fashion’ which is what Junk Kouture is all about,” explained art teacher, Helen Ryan.

The on-line voting opens on Monday, February 24 at 9am until Friday February 28 until midnight. Vote exclusively on the ERP Ireland’s facebook page-facebook.com/ERP Ireland.

Everyone can vote once per day so that is 5 votes in total.
