The Youth Leadership Development Competition 2011.

Youth Leadership Local Competition for 2011.

Will be Hosted by


The Rotary Club of Navan

On Tuesday, 11th October 2011

In Navan Credit Union Building, Kennedy Road, Navan.


Every year Navan Rotary in conjunction with Rotary International organizes a Youth Leadership Competition. The competition is open to anyone who has attained 15 years and will be less than 18 years on 1st March 2012.


As a culmination of this year’s competition 24 young people, selected at the regional finals, will be traveling to Strasbourg early next year to participate in EUROSCOLA 2012 on an all expenses paid trip. This is a part of a very special week, which sees young people coming together and meeting participants from all the European Union countries and forming friendships, which will last a lifetime.


It is a competition that has been running for a number of years now in which all the Rotary Clubs in Ireland participate. The local winners go forward to a regional final and upon completion, a total of 24 regional winners form an Irish Youth Leadership Delegation who are accompanied to Brussels for a week in February each year. They are joined by a similar number from the other EU countries and participate in workshops in mixed groups and have the use of the EU Parliament to debate the various issues they have considered. Navan Credit Union has been our very generous sponsor for our competition in recent years.


The closing date for this competition will be 4th October 2011. And the interview date will be 11th October 2011.


The Nomination Forms are designed in such a way that they can be printed directly from the Internet by the applicants in schools.
