A fourth-class pupil at Ballyraine National School in Letterkenny, is the lucky winner of the National Standards Authority of Ireland Robot Colouring Competition. 

As part of World Standards Day 2018, pupils from all over Ireland were invited to draw a fun and friendly robot. The most creative entry would win a robot arm for their class at school.
