CCS Students Shine Bright at the National Young Social Innovator Awards

Students representing the Young Social Innovator Team and Amber Team were celebrating last week as they achieved national recognition for their mental health project The Elephant in the Room . The award ceremony was held in the Aviva . Cashel Community School was the only school in Tipperary selected this year .

CEO of YSI, Roger Warnock, said: “The incredible quality of ideas submitted this year led to a higher number of teams being selected for the final pitches. Each one of them demonstrated the creative thinking, passion and teamwork needed to find impactful solutions to social issues affecting their communities”.

The support from teachers, parents, families and YSI guides is essential to the successful coordination of these social innovation projects and we’re so grateful to them for their ongoing commitment.

“It’s wonderful to see so many teams at today’s Awards and to recognise their energy and passion. Our partners and judges are as excited and encouraged by the winning projects as the team at YSI and I have no doubt that the future is in safe hands with these incredible young people from Tipperary.”
