A GROUP of students from Castletroy took home a top prize in the B!G Idea National Showcase.

The winning local students took home the top prize in the cost of living category in the competition for their project ‘The Change Agents’.

The Limerick students recognised the financial pressures some families face when it comes to extra-curricular activities, so organised a free ‘Fun Fest’ to promote music and sports among primary school students.

Castletroy College teacher Martina Murphy was also recognised for her outstanding support to her students.

The annual B!G Idea aims to give students the opportunity to solve problems creatively.
