Seanad Transition Year Debate Competition

Posted September 12th, 2017

As part of the Vótáil100 programme of events, celebrating the 2018 centenary of women gaining the right to vote, the Oireachtas are running a competition that will see transition year students getting a chance to speak in the Seanad Chamber.

The students finally selected will be mentored in public speaking, and participation will give students the opportunity to develop their confidence to present in front of an audience. They are inviting students with an interest in History, English, Irish, & Politics, who want to engage in a lively debate about important social and political issues to apply with a short letter of 300 words or less.

Closing date for entries is Friday 29th September. This is a great opportunity for young people with an interest in politics to get involved and start to discuss their views.
