Raphoe student Lauren McConnell was awarded her prize for being the County Winner of the Someone Like Me art competition.
The St. Eunan’s NS 6th class student was presented with her award for winning the competition at Dublin City Hall on Wednesday.
With over 2,500 submissions received ranging from posters to poems and everything in between, it was a huge accomplishment for Lauren and she has made her school proud.
This competition aims to promote disability awareness among primary school children and give them a greater understanding of what unites children of differing abilities.
Someone Like Me enables children to learn about and discuss these topics and creatively express what they’ve learned through art.
Lauren also was the overall winner of 10-13 years Credit Union Art Competition in December.
