Silver Award - Young Social Innovators

In May 2019, Largy College were awarded the Silver Award at the Young Social Innovators of the Year national final in Croke Park.

Young Social Innovators Global Citizens Award 2019 

Now in its 17th year, Young Social Innovators challenges young people to come up with and implement creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues facing them, their communities and wider Irish society. Some 600 teenagers from more than 30 second-level schools around the country gathered at Croke Park for this year’s awards ceremony, where the winners of the nine challenge categories, such as Making our World: Safer; Poverty Free; Fair and Just; Healthier, along with the winners of the Global Citizens Awards, the Social Media Award and others were also announced.

Their project focused on improving the support and solidarity that their community shows to asylum seekers and refugees and this ambitious group developed the ‘We Are All Human’ project. Their efforts were further recognised when the team received the Global Citizens Award 2019 which is supported by World Wise Global Schools.
