Teresa McKinley, a student from Sacred Heart Grammar School, Newry was a special guest at the SWaMP (Southern Waste and Management Partnership) Joint Committee April meeting. Teresa was invited to attend the meeting to recognise her achievement in winning the 2013 Northern Ireland Senior Environmental Youth Speak title and to deliver her winning speech “The True Cost of Waste”. Teresa was joined by Lauren Crozier, Dromore Primary School, Tyrone. Lauren was the Junior SWAMP winner and her speech was entitled “My Waste has got Talent”. Both speakers impressed the committee with their innovative and engaging recitals. Environmental Youth Speak is an annual schools’ environmental public speaking competition in which all twenty six Councils participate and which is run in conjunction with the north’s three waste management groups. Teresa won the Newry and Mourne Senior title in February and went on to represent the Council at the Regional and Northern Ireland Finals held in the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre, Limavady, where she was crowned both the SWAMP Regional and Northern Ireland Senior Environmental Youth Speak Champion 2013.
