President's Civic Spirit Award

The President’s Civic Spirit Award has been established to recognise and acknowledge the significant contribution of IT Tralee’s student volunteers to the Institute and the wider community. Engaging with one’s community as a volunteer brings a benefit to both student and community, this award seeks to encourage student community engagement, active citizenship and build on the established work that is being carried out by students.

In order to be eligible for this award, you need to demonstrate commitment to a voluntary organisation/project. This may be on campus, within local community or in your home town. All students who submit their work will be awarded an IT Tralee President’s Civic Spirit Certificate. A Gold, Silver and Bronze Award will be bestowed on three candidates displaying outstanding volunteering experience and impact, as adjudged by the award selection panel. Application will be processed through StudentVolunteer.ie
