Pumped - A Great New Competition for Schools


Pumped is an exciting new competition for second level pupils (under the age of 16) which challenges them to think about teenage health issues and use their imagination to create a short 90 second video. There are some great prizes on offer including iPads, iPods and iPod Nanos. The winning school will also received €5000 for their science department. Organised in association with Bayer and the Irish Heart Foundation, Pumped will award the prizes to the best short videos which explain an aspect of the following four themes: Kids Need Good Grub, Fit For Fun, Smoking Stinks & Fats and Sugars - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Judges will be looking for "entertaining and persuasive videos on one of the four topics. They want to see that students have researched the topic and understand the science behind it and the reasons why students took the approaches they did. They also want to see creativity and clear messaging on your chosen subject." Click here to see all the "Frequently Asked Questions" on Pumped or download a poster for your school here. Only one entry from each school is allowed however and all work must be original. The Pumped website also contains loads of resources for anyone thinking of getting involved.
