'Decade of Centenaries' Irish History Competition for Schools 2018
The decade 2012-2022 is categorised as the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ as it marks the centenary of a number of important historical events and developments that occurred in the period 1912-1922, and which formed a vital role in the formation of modern Ireland. As part of the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ commemorations, schools and students at all levels of primary and post-primary schools across Ireland are invited, in the 2017-18 school year, to enter the fifth annual schools’ history competition.
All entries should principally focus on the 1912-1922 period, or a part of it. The competition is open to all primary and post-primary schools. The project can be submitted by a class, a group of students, or an individual student. Full details, and the template cover sheet for projects, will be available to download at www.education.ie/historycompetition. The closing date will be Friday, 23rd March 2018, and prizes will be awarded in May that year. Additional forms, posters and information sheets will also be available in your local education centres (list available at www.ateci.ie), while answers to some commonly asked practical questions about submitting projects will be provided on Scoilnet (www.scoilnet.ie) early in 2018.
