About the YEA
ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards is an all-Ireland environmental awards programme that recognises and rewards young people who raise environmental awareness and improve the environment. WasteMatchers is proud to be a part of this in 2012, further encouraging young people to look at ways of reusing items that might otherwise be waste and creating an awareness around waste minimisation.

This Young Environmentalist Awards programme is open to any group of young people between 10 - 18 years of age. Projects must be registered before 30 November 2011 and submitted by 22 February 2013.

About the www.wastematchers.com Award

The www.wastematchers.com Award is open to Cork schools only and aims to recognise groups for their imagination and ability to create something new from something old. Usable items are available on the site and could be used to either build something very new and creative or maybe furnish or improve your school, youth club or sports facility. Don't forget you can also post an ad for something you require!

Last year's groups made bird boxes from old kitchen units, litter bins from reused election posters, a giant titanic replica from old milk bottles and some really funky fashion from recycled clothes, feathers & other bits & bobs.
