The award for overall winner of this year’s Drogheda Young Innovators Award went to three students from Drogheda Grammar School, Charlie Kinsella, Cian Mc Grady Mc Guinness and Simon Radike, for a TY mini company they setup called FlashDiscs.  FlashDiscs offer a range of audio CD revision guides for Junior Cert subjects, which are now selling throughout Ireland – see www.facebook.com/FlashDiscs2016.

Organised by a voluntary group of local business people, teachers and The Mill Enterprise Hub, the Drogheda Young Innovators (DYI) competition, which is now in its third year, challenges Drogheda’s students to consider a career in science, social enterprise, or business.

Twenty-one projects were shortlisted from the initial 52 applications, and prizes were awarded in each of the three categories (Science, Business, and Social Enterprise) for both individual and team entries, and one overall competition prize which was won by our 3 Transition Year students – well done! Many thanks also to Ms. McEneaney the business and mini-company teacher who has brought them through the whole process and given them great advice, guidance and encouragement.
