This year the Awards are now open to undergraduates in your institution enrolled in degree level courses in the academic year 09/10. We are open to submissions in the form of an essay/project which can be entered into one of 26 categories.

The submissions deadline for round one closes on 12th March. This round is especially for final and penultimate year students together with part-time students who have secured at least 1/3 of credits necessary to graduate.
We would be very grateful if you could inform your students that we are now open for submissions and to check out the website for further information
These awards encourage our top undergraduates to believe in the validity of their work and in their entitlement to a public place of respect within scholarly discourse. President Mary McAlleese
