The initiative was launched last October as part of the IMPACT-supported Youth Connect project, which introduces school children to trade union and workplace issues through school visits and projects. It’s part of a new module on the struggle for decent work and the lessons of the Lockout centenary.
The awards were presented last week at a special screening in Dublin’s Savoy Cinema. The MC for the event was Love/Hate actor Aaron Heffernan. The prize for the winning team is a five-day trip to New York. Coláiste Chiaráin also won in the best acting category. The other winners were:
