TY Business student wins Judge's Merit Award at Dublin City Final of Student Enterprise Programme

Ty Student Enterprise Merit Award March2019 P1100351
NEWS / 27 March 2019

Congratulations to Nellie in TY who won a Judge's Merit Award at the Dublin City Finals of the Student Enterprise Programme on Tuesday, 26th March. Nellie writes about her experience of the Dublin City Finals held in Croke Park.

For the second round in the Student Enterprise competition, I went to Croke Park on the 26th of March. I was able to set up my stand and be interviewed by the judges as they came around. There were plenty of amazing businesses, so I didn’t have high expectations. But when they announced the winners of several awards – they announced my business for the merit award! This wasn’t like coming first place: it didn’t mean I had to go on to the next round, but it did mean I got two glass plaques and 100 euro in one-for-all vouchers! I was delighted and it was a great experience overall. 

See Awards & Achievement page.
