Congratulations to the seven Transition Year teams from Beech Hill College who have been selected out of almost 1400 entries, to showcase their designs in this year’s regional final.  

The seven chosen designs will perform on the catwalk in the Millennium Forum in Derry on the 1st of March in a bid to secure a place in the Grand Final in Dublin’s 3Arena in May.  

All seven striking designs are hand made from everyday junk by Beech Hill College Art students who worked tirelessly guided by their teachers Ms Arlene Connolly and Ms Anne Costello over the last few months to bring their ideas to life. Well done to everyone involved and good luck in Derry.
