A KILMOYLEY school pupil was chosen as a regional winner in a national painting competition.
Mia Hunt, age 6, from SN Naomh Eirc, has been chosen as one of Ireland’s best young painters for her entry to the Sightsavers Junior Painters Awards 2017.
Mia’s painting was inspired by this year’s theme of “Framing the Future” and is a regional winner in her category.
Competition was as tough as ever with thousands of children from over 200 primary schools across the country entering this hugely popular annual art competition. Mia is one of the 15 finalists out of thousands of entries chosen to have their painting displayed at the awards ceremony in Dublin on Monday last.
This year’s top four finalists won substantial cash prizes for their schools. Every child that entered received a Certificate of Participation in recognition of their creative efforts.
The 15 finalist paintings will be exhibited in Powerscourt Townhouse Centre from July 1st through to August 5th.
