Celebrating Young Talent

Secondary Schools Writing Competition

September / November
Open to Secondary School Students

We’re inviting secondary school students to show off their writing prowess with an essay, short story or poem with the theme ‘The GAA is at the heart of who we are’. 

Entries will be judged by a panel of talent-spotting experts, including writers Fiona Looney and Paul Howard.  There will be winner and runner-up prizes for Junior and Senior Cycles across both Irish and English language entries.

Winners will be honoured with a special awards ceremony with their parents, teachers and the esteemed the judging panel. They’ll also get a chance to spend the day with the GAA Communications Department, where they might even uncover a future calling…
 
Full participation and prize details to follow.
