UCD History and Health is a new team competition for Transition Year students for the 2017-18 academic year. It aims to commemorate the events of 1913-1923 in a creative and multidisciplinary way, linking past and present, science and humanities.
The UCD History and Health Competition are now happy to announce the results!
The pool of fascinating and creative videos was reviewed by our judges and shortlisted to the final group, which were judged at a special screening by a panel of UCD’s most senior staff in the fields of history, medicine and media, including: Prof. Mark Rogers, Registrar, Prof Orla Feely, Vice-President for Research, Innovation and Impact and Chair of the UCD Decade of Commemorations Committee, Ms. Helen Guerin, Director of Media Services & Prof. Catherine Cox, Head of the Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland.
It was a tight competition, but we are delighted to announce that our winners are St. Joseph of Cluny for their detailed and thoughtful video on Margaret Sanger. Runners-up were Mount Sackville, with a very creative video celebrating the life and contribution to health of John Joly. Thanks to all the schools that entered!
