Of the 15 finalists in the 2012 Brainfood.ie Fantasy Writing Awards, two are from Donegal. “This is a very impressive achievement by these Donegal students,” says Dr. Frank Ryan, head of the judging panel, “especially bearing in mind that over 5,200 pupils nationwide entered the competition!”
Students nationwide were asked to ‘feed their imaginations’ and compose a short story based in the fantasy/science fiction genre.
The two Donegal finalists are: Sophie Savva, Glenswilly National School, Letterkenny and Conor Chapman, Abbey Vocational School, Donegal Town. The three category winners and overall winner of the Brainfood.ie Fantasy Writing Competition will be announced at a ceremony in Dublin on Monday 6th February.
