Taking Part

This year’s competition is taking a new and exciting direction as we launch the Global Goal Getters, a series of online multi-media magazines featuring student work. This is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to showcase their learning, creativity and actions nationwide!


1. Using our Partnership for the Goals pupils’ magazine and lesson plan (available online soon) become inspired by the Our World Irish Aid Awards 2021 theme (Partnership for the Goals), Irish Aid’s work and/or the Global Goals.

2. Encourage your pupils to come up with a creative written or multi-media piece that shows their learning.
3. Submit their work to us (in English or Irish!) with an entry form for a chance to feature in our 2021 national online Global Goal Getters February Issue.


Selected entries from pupils in 3rd – 6th class will be featured in one of three, Global Goal Getters magazines by kids, for kids, published from February 2021 – May 2021 on www.ourworldirishaidawards.ie.
Just make sure to get your entry in by the following closing date to be in with a chance of selection for our February issue: Friday, 4th December, 2020
Can’t meet the deadline? Don’t worry! Send us your pupils’ work anyway. They’ll receive a participation certificate and the opportunity to get featured in a later issue!
If your pupils’ work is selected for publication, we will contact you with an invitation to take your involvement further and provide you with additional lesson plans.

You can find all the information on our website: www.ourworldirishaidawards.ie
