Eircom Junior Spider Awards Shortlist

This year I was honoured to be one of the judges on the Eircom Junior Spider Awards. Today, Eircom has announced the shortlist for this year’s eircom Junior Spider Awards. Similar to previous years, the Awards are divided into three main categories: The Mega Spiders aimed at youths aged 4 – 12 years; the Giga aimed at youths aged 13 – 15 years and Tera Spiders which are aimed at youths aged 16 – 19 years. You can see all the details on the Junior Spiders’ web site. As Anseo.net is aimed at primary school children, I’m just going to list the Mega Spider Awards. It was amazing to see the talent at such a young age and all the below are a credit to themselves.
