Young people who love nature and the outdoors were invited to take part in a summer writing challenge this year.

The overall international winner  was announced earlier this week.

This year, Dublin Bay and Kerry Biospheres have joined in; running their own local challenges, with entrants aged 21 and under invited to submit up to 500 words on their own favourite place, animal or experience in nature.
