Students must register and apply via the online system.

Their completed application is submitted to their principal for review/submission. A principal can nominate two students maximum - this can be two from same category or one from each category.The principal (or a designated representative) must endorse / provide a reference for each application via the online system before the closing date. A judging panel, including people from charitable organisations, education and Pramerica, will select 20 Finalists and the two All-Ireland Youth Volunteers of the Year.

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.
