Young Social Innovators of the Year Gold Award Winners 2018
The Gold Winners in 2018 were from Ardscoil Mhuire, Corbally, Co. Limerick (pictured below) with their project entitled Sexting - Get The Message. Concerned at the prevalence of ‘sexting’ among their peers, this team is campaigning for a specific law on the issue and engaged with government representatives, social media companies and community guards to educate young people about the consequences of sending images of an adult nature online.
