The aim of the awards is to celebrate student creativity and engagement with aspects of the Decent Work Agenda and Trade Union Movement’s ethos.

This year students were asked to research Income Inequality, its impact on society, and possible solutions. The interpretation of the theme will hope to highlight the concerns of young people on important issues such as income inequality and inspire others to take an interest.

The award ceremony will take place on Thursday February 26th, from 2-4pm at the Savoy Cinema, Dublin which the girls will be attending along with the other nominees nationwide.

You can watch the videos and vote for your favourite. Voting will remain open until 1pm on Monday February 23. Only one vote per email address will be accepted.

    There was actually 30 groups shortlisted out of the 92 that entered and then it was narrowed down to 15 nominees. The 15 groups that were nominated will have their videos screened at the award ceremony and will be in with a chance to win a trip to New York, while the 30 shortlisted people are up for winning the people’s choice award (which is where the public vote online)
