What is #Dúshlán?
#Dúshlán is a competition aimed at third level and second level students to encourage them to engage with Irish in a fun way. It gives students the opportunity to engage with Irish outside of the classroom and naturally with their friends. There will be 30 challenges to undertake within 50 hours. We want to encourage the language amongst our young people! 99% of participants from last year were very happy or happy with the competition.
How does it work?
You can sign up your team of three people now. The closing dates for registration is 30th January 2019.
After registering, your team you will receive an email with your team number and more details about how to take part in the competition. There is no limit to the amount of teams any one school or college can register.
The competition will begin at 12.00 on February 5th when the list of challenges will be released to every team. Every challenge will allow you to collect a certain amount of points, for example:
“Write a seanfhocal in emojis = 1 point”
“Design a t-shirt as Gaeilge = 4 points”
All teams must send us evidence of every challenge they carry out with pictures, videos or recordings on WhatsApp. Every team must have access to WhatsApp in order to take part in the competition. This allows us to have a record of every team's entries for when judging is taking place.
How will the winners be chosen?
The winners will be the team that carries out every challenge within the 50 hour time limit. If more than one team manages to do this, first place winners will be chosen based on how creatively they carried out the challenges. Subsequent teams will be given 2nd and 3rd place.The decision making process will be undertaken by a group of judges. Every student who takes part in the competition will receive a certificate.
