Educate to INNOVATE is a philanthropic initiative focused on the growth and education of young people. Through Educate to INNOVATE, we invest in young people who need financial support and have demonstrated leadership qualities in their community. We believe this empowerment model will make a significant difference to our people, our community and our industry.
Educate to INNOVATE started as a school business award. It is a program to stimulate enterprise and encourage entrepreneurial activity among the secondary school students of our community. This initiative fosters relationships between industry and the community and encourages young people to think in a way that benefits the economy.
The presentation of the projects on the final night both visually, and in front of the adjudication panel, displayed a high level of confidence and ability in all the students taking part. The overall winner for 2017 was Mmmm - Magic Microwave Mug Muffins from Coláiste Bhríde Carnew.
Jim Hughes, CEO INNOVATE said: "We look forward to continuing these awards in 2018 and hopefully one day we will see some of these students in business creating employment and developing a brighter future for North Wexford."
