Two Monaghan students were awarded full scholarships to the StageWise Performing Arts Camp recently
The scholarships are awarded from the T.P McKenna Drama Scholarships Programme, – who was a Cavan born film and television actor.
Auditions for the scholarships were open to all Cavan Monaghan ETB schools – and students performed a monologue or poem as part of their audition.
The two students were Ieva Stasule from Castleblayney Youthreach, and Aoibhinn Nic Ghabhann from Castleblayney College.
Speaking on Northern Sound radio station, Arts Education Officer Niamh Smyth said “StageWise is a great way for young people to develop their creative talent and their self esteem”.
