Ceredigion wins highest number of medals at Urdd Eisteddfod 2024

Ceredigion has secured the highest number of medals in this year’s Urdd Eisteddfod, taking home a total of 135 awards.

The recent Urdd Eisteddfod in Maldwyn, Powys, proved very successful for the children and young people of Ceredigion. Ceredigion won the highest number of medals in total, with 53 First Place medals; 40 Second Place medals; and 42 Third Place medals.


Ceredigion came a very close second to Cardiff and Vale. Competitors from all over Ceredigion sang, danced, and recited in celebration of Welsh language, art and culture. Other competitions included poetry and literature, in addition to science, technology, art, and vocational skills.


A Ceredigion County Council spokesperson said: “To see our young people come out on top is fantastic but perhaps what matters most is the opportunities the Urdd has given our young people to enjoy cultural and creative experiences not only at the Urdd National Eisteddfod but also at District and Region Eisteddfodau, and various other competitions and events. We’d like to sincerely thank the teachers, volunteers, and parents/guardians that give their time to ensure that young people can enjoy these experiences.


“Congratulations to our competitors, teachers and coaches and also thanks to the Urdd Officers for the inspiration.”
