After a record year of entries in 2021, the Audiology Medical Service’s ‘Christmas Carol School Competition’ returns for the third year. Schools throughout Ireland are being invited to submit videos singing their favourite Christmas songs to win a cash prize of €1000 for their school
Submissions are welcomed and encouraged in a wide range of styles, from gospel to pop, rap to folk, jazz, classical and beyond, with extra points given to any class that includes Lámh or sign language in their video.
Primary schools nationwide are eligible to enter, with teachers required to email a video or link of their entry directly to Audiology Medical Services. Shortlisted finalists will be selected by a panel of judges, with the winner of the massive €1000 prize then chosen through a public vote.
Speaking at the launch of this year’s competition, Chief Operating Officer of Audiology Medical Service, Kay Lewis, said: “We have seen how musically talented the children of Ireland are over the last couple of years with this competition, and I cannot wait to hear this year’s submissions. Our Christmas Carol School Competition highlights the tremendous talent while celebrating the joy of Christmas and all the wonderful sounds we experience over the festive season, and in particularly highlighting the important role our hearing plays in creating lasting memories and experiencing Christmas to the fullest.”
Kay went on to add: “If our Christmas Carol Competition isn’t for your class, we are also running a Christmas Colouring Competition with a choice of 3 different festive designs to win a €100 shopping voucher. And, for the first time, we want to hear the children of Ireland best jokes which will be published in a Children’s Joke Book set to be launched in Spring 2023. All proceeds from the joke book will go to local children’s charities. Email jokes, with the student’s name, school and location to email@example.com”
