Second-level students have the opportunity to enter the competition in English or Irish. Remember if you enter in Irish you will have less competition, so use your language skills to your advantage!
We are giving away superb prizes for the top three entries in each category (TY, Leaving Cert (Incl. LCA and LCVP), Best Entry As Gaeilge, and Best Adult Entry).
The winner of each category receives the amazing GoPro Hero 6, with Dr Dre Beats for each 2nd Place and Creative Bluetooth Speaker for each 3rd Place.
In addition, the school of the winning student from each category will receive a cash prize of €1,000 for the relevant programme.
The National Career Skills Award Ceremony 2019 will take place on the 8th May at the Department of Education & Skills. The winning students and their parents will be invited to attend the prize giving ceremony.
