Elin Williams, Marketing Manager, Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, said:
It is a pleasure to sponsor this year's Triban Festival which will give our ambassadors a great opportunity to gain valuable experiences. They will present and interview from Triban platforms and give the Coleg Cymraeg and Eisteddfod social media followers a taste of the Festival's offering.
BBC Radio Cymru will be interviewing our ambassadors who will be part of the Triban Crew next week.
We are delighted to be collaborating with the Coleg Cymraeg and the ambassadors on the digital content of this year's Triban Festival. We are very grateful to the Coleg for their financial support and look forward to seeing the ambassadors' digital content on the social media of the Coleg Cymraeg and the Urdd Eisteddfod.
