We were delighted to sponsor a number of awards at the LEO South Dublin County Student Enterprise Awards Final, held at IT Tallaght on Friday March 6th. 14 schools from South Dublin competed at the regional finals and a total of 27 awards worth close to €4000 were presented across three categories to the winning projects while first place winners in each category will represent South Dublin in Croke Park on April 22nd.
Our Commercial Manager Cathryn McMenamy presented three awards in the Social Media Category at the event; Mikey’s Candles set up by Mikey Ó Dúlain, Coláiste De Híde, Tallaght; Socket Pocket set up by Caoileann Nic Artáin, Coláiste De Híde, Tallaght and Life Slice set up by Cathal Ó Tuile, Conchur Ó hUallacháin & Craig Ó Buaigh, Coláiste De Híde, Tallaght. Martin Nolan, head of the Accounting & Finance Department in ITT Dublin, said: “The Student Enterprise Awards encourages and enables students to take on the world of business and develop an entrepreneurial mind-set.
By fostering an enterprising culture in the classroom, the Local Enterprise Offices are working with teachers and schools to help nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs.” Best of luck to all those going on the finals in Croke Park!
