Holiday World Show Schools Art Competition


We are inviting primary schools students from all around the country to enter the Holiday World Show Schools Art Competition and be in with a chance to win Aer Lingus Flights or Heritage Island Family Passes for them and their family. This exciting competition will run in advance of and during the Holiday World Show Dublin, taking place 26th-28th January 2018 in the RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin 4.


There are 2 categories for the Art Competition:

Aer Lingus ‘Draw Your Dream Destination’ Art Competition – Ages 7-12

If you could fly anywhere in the world with Aer Lingus, where would you go? Building sandcastles in Spain, riding a rollercoaster in Florida or climbing the Canadian Rockies? We would like students to create a piece of art that depicts somewhere they would love to travel to.

WIN: Family Flights for 4 (must include one adult) to any European Aer Lingus destination
Normal terms and conditions apply. Subject to availability. No cash alternative.
