The grand final in Dublin followed four regional heats which saw 2,000 students whittled down to just 80 finalists.

The Junk Kouture judges made up of Irish model Faye Dinsmore, TV presenter Darren Kennedy, The European Recycling Platform’s Yvonne Holmes and Art and Design Educator Tracy Fahey had the difficult decision of picking the winners.

The Nationwide special will be shown tonight Monday (22nd) at 7pm on RTÉ One and will detail the Junk Kouture story so far with interviews and behind the scenes footage from the grand final.
