Local Fine Gael T.D., Noel Coonan, has urged local entrepreneurs living in the North Tipperary and South Offaly constituency, who are between the ages of 15 and 22 to submit their ideas on job creation, to the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Frances Fitzgerald T.D..
“The Department of Children and Youth Affairs are organising a nationwide campaign, offering young people with ideas on job creation, the opportunity to put their proposals to Government.
This is a great initiative and I urge any local young person in North Tipperary and South Offaly to get involved in this competition. It would be fantastic to have local participation in this programme which offers some exciting rewards for winning proposals. Entries are being evaluated by leading Irish business people and entrepreneurs,” stated the local Fine Gael T.D..
This competition is being organised in conjunction with TV3′s “Every Job Counts ” campaign and in line with the Government’s current focus on job creation. The young people behind the top proposals will be given the opportunity to shadow a leading business person and the overall winner will receive a research grant of up to €15,000. Participants will also be rewarded for their effort by receiving constructive feedback from business leaders.
“Young people, like so many in our community, are justifiably worried about the recession, worried about their parents employment and about their own future employment. Many of them have huge energy and exciting ideas for economic development and this initiative will help them structure those ideas into workable proposals,” said Deputy Coonan.
To enter this competition simply email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to Minister Frances Fitzgerald, Dept. of Children, Mespil Road, Dublin 4.
