Secondary school students are being asked to become more aware of the environmental impact of their belongings.
The "Story of Your Stuff" competition is inviting teenagers from right across the region to investigate the life cycle of household items and present their findings in imaginative formats for a chance to win 500 euro vouchers.
Programme Manager of the Environmental Protection Agency Dr. Jonathan Derham says the project is ideal for students learning from home.
Competition guidelines and tips are available at www.thestoryofyourstuff.ie . The deadline for entries is Monday, March 8th.
