The Competition:
The Health Service Executive’s campaign would like your students to create an empowering 60-second advert to help inform young people about where to go to get trustworthy information about relationships and sexual health.

This project is completely free of charge and will provide an exciting creative outlet for your pupils and build on their awareness, literacy skills, persuasive writing techniques and communication skills.

The Prize:
The winning school will have their advertisement professionally produced and broadcast on a UTV radio or TV station to viewers and listeners nationwide and will be invited to a VIP Tour of the UTV studios.

If you would like to take part, and for more information, please register your school HERE.

We know that young people experience different types of peer pressure as they grow up, so it is important that they are encouraged to think about what’s important to them before making any big decisions about their relationships.

Developed by the HSE Sexual Health & Crisis Pregnancy Programme with support from the Department of Education, is a web based initiative with resources for teachers that are used by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST).  The website content is in line with the RSE curriculum for Junior Cycle.

Once you register you will be provided with all the resources your students need to create their TV or radio ad.

Please take your time to explore the platform, you will find a video brief set by HSE explaining exactly what your students need to do and what HSE will be listening out for in their commercials. The rest is down to your students creative freedom and to help them we have lots of downloadable resources available for any research they might want to do, and any creative writing tips they might need to construct their commercials.

Once your students have recorded their  commercials you can upload your entries to the ucreate’s submissions page or send them directly to There’s no limit on how many you send us they just have to comply with the brief set for them.

We look forward to hearing from you and working with your students on this project as part of the sexual health campaign.
