Young Economist of the Year Awards
St Andrew's College had an exceptionally good evening at the Young Economist of the Year Awards on Thursday 20 May.
Sixteen of our original forty-one entries were classified as 'gold medal' awards, meaning that they were eligible to win further awards last night at the Finals. Ten of these sixteen gold medalists went on to win further prizes, including four first places. This is a fantastic achievement and we congratulate all our students who took part.
Saskia Kirland is the Sixth Year Winner and Overall Winner in the IGEES Category for Projects on Government Economic Policy. As part of her prize, Saskia will meet the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Michael McGrath, next week to present her project.
Senior Environmental and Sustainability Award: First Place went to Fergal Francis and Saskia Kirkland, both Sixth Year students.
Junior Environmental and Sustainability Award: Third Place went to Erin Egan (Second Year).
