Ardee girl wins art competition to switch on RTE's Christmas lights

Ardee girl Shaney McConnon wins art competition to switch on RTE's Christmas lights

Ardee schoolgirl Shaney McConnon won the RTE news2day Christmas Light competition this year.

It is a great achievement for the budding artist as it is a national art competition, open to all primary schools across the country.

The theme this year was 'My Christmas Wish'. Shaney made a 3-D house enclosed in a snow globe with a banner outside that read 'My Christmas Wish is Homes for the Homeless'.

Shaney, who attends Ardee Educate Together NS, will be on RTE NEWS2DAY at 4.20 on RTE 2 on Friday December 1st to turn on the RTE Christmas Lights.

The school are extremely proud of all Shaney's hard work and hopes she enjoys her day in the RTE studio.
