Youth Awards Are Upon Us!

All the best to the 1,000+ people who are making the journey to on Saturday for the National Youth Awards. We are bringing 900 teenagers and 300 adult leaders together to celebrate the work of No Name Clubs in communities across Ireland and recognise the outstanding contribution our hosts and hostesses are making to their clubs and their wider communities. In clubs and communities across the country, the excitement and anticipation has been building for weeks and the event is now almost upon us. To those travelling, we wish you a very safe journey to and from the awards and hope you have a fun-filled, enjoyable and memorable event.

Of course, the National Youth Awards will see the No Name Club Host and Hostess 2011/2012 named. The 12 finalists have held their one-to-one interviews with the final judges and will now speak with event MC, RTE Journalist Damien Tiernan, at the final itself and also perform a party piece. The No Name Club wants to take this opportunity to congratulate our 2011/2012 finalists and to wish them the very best at the final. You should all be very proud of your achievement in reaching the National Youth Awards Final. We hope you have a great experience and a very enjoyable day.

Con Nolan, No Name Club Chief Executive has said ahead of awards: “This is a unique occasion and a massive event. The National Youth Awards recognise the excellent work that over 1,000 teenagers are carrying out within their clubs and their wider communities. Our hosts and hostesses are supported by adult leaders in running the clubs for themselves and their peers and in doing so, they deliver much-needed and valuable fun activities and events for young people in Irish communities and take a lead role in working for the betterment of their wider community. We work with teenagers to develop their confidence and leadership skills and the work of our hosts and hostesses highlights the fantastic contributions young people can make to society when they are supported. These awards allow us to celebrate positive contributions teenagers are making in communities across Ireland.”

To the clubs, hosts and hostess, and adult committee members who will travel to the awards this Saturday, we look forward to seeing you there for a night of celebration.
