The thrifty students collected a vast array of unwanted “junk” to fashion their entry which sees them go forward to compete in the Northern regional final of the competition on the 1st of March in the Millennium Forum, Derry.

The students had a surprise visit from Junk Kouture and representatives from Bank of Ireland Letterkenny last week to present them with a silver ticket to the next round.
