Eoghan McDermott spoke at the event
Yesterday in Dublin, the winners were announced of the Drugs.ie “Let’s Talk About Drugs” Youth Media Awards, an annual competition which encourages young people to start discussions about drug related issues.
The overall winner of this year’s competition was Kells Youthreach for their video ‘Monkey on your back’, which tackles issues around drug addiction.
Television and radio star Eoghan McDermott, who was guest of honour at the event, said: “To have a project which encourages young people to think about drugs and drug use, to start a conversation with their peers and to create such wonderful resources is simply fantastic. It’s important to empower young people to think critically, to investigate the evidence, to talk with their peers – these are all skills that are essential in life.”
