National Broadband Ireland calls on Cork primary schools to take part in new ‘Imagine the Future’ competition

National Broadband Ireland has launched a new competition for nearly 700 primary schools across in the Intervention Area of the National Broadband Plan.

The competition aims to look into how students perceive high-speed fibre broadband and what can be done with it.

The competition asks students to simply ‘Imagine the Future’ and create a piece of art responding to that thought.

Entries can be submitted in a variety of forms, such as: a sculpture, a photo, a painting, a song, a short movie or even a dance – making it as accessible as possible for students to participate.

Entries can focus on the following themes:

  • Transportation of the future
  • School of the future
  • Home of the future
  • Workplace of the future
  • Hospital of the future
  • Community of the future

The competition will go through three phases: a school, county and national phase. Winners from each school will progress to the county phase, where a panel of judges selected by NBI will decide who will represent their county at the final national phase and be in with a  chance to win an ActivPanel.

A Promethean™ ActivPanel™ is a state of the art interactive flat panel display, and is the top prize that can be won for your school.
