About The Award

The Award was launched in International Youth Year 1985. The challenges of the Award programme are designed to encourage initiative, self-discipline, leadership and caring skills in young people between the ages of 15 and 25.

Whats it all about?

Gaisce-the President’s Award works on the basis of a personnel challenge set by you with the support of a President’s Award leader (PAL). You won’t be competing with other participants, as each challenge is completely individual, so the only person you’ll compete with is yourself.
