The 2014 SEAI Get Involved community initiative launched in April received a massive boost this week following the decision by organisers, NNI Local and Regional and the Regional Newspapers and Printers Association of Ireland (RNPAI) to provide a €7,000 prize fund for this year’s competition.
The winning entry from each newspaper will be eligible to compete for this valuable prize fund which will consist of a €5,000 bursary for the winning project and 2 x €1,000 bursaries for the two runner-up projects.
Judging for the awards will take place in October/November by the judging panel, chaired by renowned broadcaster/environmentalist Duncan Stewart.
This welcome boost has prompted the organisers to extend the deadline. So if you have ambitions to undertake a sustainable community project please contact your local newspaper editor. For further information go to www. get-involved.ie
