Implementing The Programme Is Easy
There are two categories in the 2017 Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards:
- Junior category (for students under the age of 16 on the 1st of January 2018)
- Senior category (for students under the age of 19 on the 1st of January 2018)
A Principal can put forward a maximum of two students for National judging. This can be two in same category or one in each category.
A judging panel, including people from charitable organisations, education and Pramerica, will select 20 Finalists and the two All-Ireland volunteers. Students from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are eligible.
All students who submit an application will receive a Certificate of Merit. The Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards programme was designed not only to identify the twenty top youth volunteers, but also to give schools an effective way to congratulate deserving young volunteers and to hold them up as role models for other young people.
