AONTAS Wants Kerry Projects To Enter Star Awards

Posted by



AONTAS are looking for Kerry projects to enter into the tenth annual STAR awards.

THE NATIONAL ADULT Learning Organisation (AONTAS) wants  Kerry projects to enter the tenth annual STAR Awards, which are designed to celebrate the achievements of adult learners and adult education programmes throughout the island of Ireland.

Previous Kerry-based STAR Award winners include ‘The Ballyduff Community of Excellence in Promoting Mental Health Awareness and Well-being’ which won the 2014 STAR Award in the Munster category.

“The STAR Awards provides a real opportunity for us to highlight adult education projects that are successful in helping adults to progress on to employment, further and higher education or to contribute to their own communities,” said Berni Brady, Director of AONTAS.

“Over the 10-year history of the STAR Awards, a number of highly impressive projects from Kerry have been nominated, shortlisted and have won awards. This year, we look forward to seeing more projects from Kerry receiving recognition through the Awards,” she continued.

There are nine different categories in the STAR Awards, and adult education projects may be nominated in one category only with the awards set to be judged by an independent panel of judges.

AONTAS welcomes nominations from project coordinators, adult learners and/or people not directly involved in the project they are nominating.

Winners of the 10th annual AONTAS Star Awards will be announced at the STAR Awards ceremony in The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Dublin on Monday, 22nd February 2016.
