BORD na Móna Recycling has launched its Schools Upcycling Competition and is encouraging Limerick students to get involved.

The programme is designed to provide students with a platform to raise awareness about upcycling as an environmentally friendly practice, while fostering creativity and innovative thinking.

Participants will use materials that would typically be considered waste or discarded items, with suggested project categories including home decor, fashion and accessories, functional tools and gadgets, and artistic creations.

Entries can be made individually, in teams, or as a class.

Winners will receive a prize of €5,000 and a tour of Bord na Móna’s Lough Boora Discovery Park in Offaly.
