Share your September 20th with RTÉ

Written by spunout


Are you aged between 13 and 19 years old?

On Friday 20th September RTÉ want you to film your life and tell the world what you’re doing, feeling or seeing on this particular day. The footage submitted will be compiled into a unique documentary that will be broadcast later this year on RTÉ. Audiences will learn what it’s like to be growing up in Ireland today.

Have a look at last year’s to get a feel for what we’re talking about:
