FINALISTS in the ABP Angus Youth Challenge were given
insights into the world of media recently by Cool FM/ Downtown Radio presenters Rebecca McKinney and Caroline Fleck.
As well as being a co-presenter of Cool FM’s breakfast show, Rebecca is also a successful fashion stylist and Instagram influencer.
Caroline hosts her own show on Downtown Radio. The event, which was hosted by CAFRE at Loughry campus was organised in conjunction with the owners of Cool FM/Downtown Radio, Bauer Media.
The participants were able to hear from experienced professionals about how to create and manage media content to have impact and create engagement. They also got to create their own piece of video content with help and feedback from the trainers.
The participating schools in the 2022 ABP Angus Youth finalist programme are Banbridge Acad-
emy, Cookstown High with two teams; St Catherine’s College, Armagh, Newtownhamilton High
School; Dalriada School; Fri-ends’ Lisburn, and St Kevin’s Lisnaskea.
Each team is currently rearing their own mini herd of Angus cross calves through to finishing as well as working on assignments that support sustainable beef production in Northern Ireland.
