The 20K Drop is run na­tion­wide by Pal­las Mar­ket­ing and is sim­i­lar to the TV show ‘ The Mil­lion Pound Drop’.

Each of the eight con­tes­tants se­lected will re­ceive €2,500. They place their money on what they feel is the cor­rect an­swer.

They may di­vide their money be­tween the four sug­gested an­swers.

All money placed on the cor­rect an­swer is safe whilst the other an­swers drop their money into the podium.

Hav­ing an­swered the eight ques­tions, the con­tes­tants keep the re­main­ing amount they have left.

Prin­ci­pal of St Kevin’s Scott Vance said ‘We are de­lighted with the re­sponse from the com­pa­nies who have come on board as ma­jor spon­sors and ad­ver­tis­ers.
