What awards can young people receive?
Nominees have the opportunity to receive €1,000 for their preferred charity and a trip to Washington and terrific recognition for their school.
Each nominee will receive a Certificate of Merit. The national judging panel will then select 20 finalists from all nominees.
These 20 finalists will be awarded a Silver Medallion, €500 and an invitation to the Gala Awards dinner. At this event, two All-Ireland Youth Volunteers of the Year will be named, each of whom will receive €1,000 for their chosen charity, a crystal trophy for their school and a trip to the United States.
