Second year students Alison Healy & Rebecca McGuinness were the overall 1st prize winners with Brid Flanagan, Jessica Roche & Aoife Kiely taking 2nd prize in Category One of the Bord Bia Quality Mark Schools Competition in the Listowel Food Fair 2012 recently. The students were asked to compile pages for a new Bord Bia Quality Mark website which was to include a home page, recipe page and gallery page. The home page was to provide an outline of the Bord Bia Quality Mark, what it means and how Bord Bia promotes quality assured products to consumers. The students also had to devise a recipe using Bord Bia Quailty Mark products and to include a gallery page which included 3 photos/sketches of local products available in the area which carry the Bord Bia Quality Mark.
Alison and Rebecca received a €100 An Post voucher and certificate each, while Brid, Jessica and Aoife received a €50 An Post voucher and certificate each.
