The Jigsaw Donegal Art Exhibition was launched on Thursday 22nd March at 11am in the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny. This year our theme was "Hope".

We received an amazing 35 entries to this year’s competition from schools, Youthreach Centres and the Donegal STEP programme. In first place was Bethany Smyth (Royal and Prior Raphoe), second place was Jessica Mc Monagle (Lifford Youthreach), third place was Molly Gallagher (Loreto Convent) and fourth place was Claire Young (Loreto Convent).

We also handed out 10 Certificates of Merit to the following young people from all across the County: Jimmy Ward (Ballyshannon Youthreach), Nathan Cassidy (Coláiste Cholmcille Ballyshannon), Daniel Mugan (Deele College), Thomas Hayes (Donegal STEP), James Connolly (Letterkenny Youthreach), Katie Anderson (Lifford Youthreach), Shana Byrne (Loreto Convent), Jade Mc Clafferty (Royal and Prior), Erin Gallagher (St Catherine's Vocational School) and Emily Haden (St. Columba's College)

Jigsaw Donegal would like to extend a thank you to both our judges this year who were Mr Peadar Mc Daid, Art Facilitator with Create- A-Link and Ms Zia Mc Clean, Foróige. We are also very thankful to all the team at the Regional Cultural Centre for once again displaying our art so beautifully.
