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.
A Dragon’s Den will be held in March 2020.
This has proved to be a very enjoyable and sucessful competition during previous years with many innovative and practical small business being introduced
