Most Enterprising Student Awards 2023

Offaly’s Youngest Entrepreneurs Recognised at Most Enterprising Student Awards

The Local Enterprise Office in Offaly County Council runs an annual Most Enterprising Student Programme which offers primary schools throughout the county the opportunity to nominate their Most Enterprising Student (or group of students). It offers schools a chance to give recognition to a student who has set up and run their own business. Many of the schools that enter the competition hold an “Enterprise Day” where the students design, make and sell their products. The school then chooses their winner from all the students who participate. This often proves very difficult as the wealth of business talent is exceptional.

This year the awards will be presented at a ceremony in the Tullamore Court Hotel on Tuesday 25th April by Cathaoirleach Offaly County Council, Frank Moran.

The nominated children will have the opportunity to display their products at the awards ceremony and sell them on the day. Some examples of the businesses run by students include selling free-range eggs, home baking and handmade gifts.

Each school nominee will receive a prize pack including a €50 book token and a framed certificate.

The closing date for applications is Thursday 20th April at 2.00 pm

The Local Enterprise Office Offaly would like to sincerely thank the teachers, parents and principals for their involvement in the scheme.
