COMMUNITY AWARDS 2019

 

 

 Invitation to Voluntary Community Groups to submit Entries for the 2019 Awards 

 

The objective of the Kerry Community Awards is to recognise the work of the community and voluntary sector that seeks to improve the Social, Economic, Cultural and Environmental quality of life in our local communities, both urban and rural.

 

Kerry Community Awards are open to all community and voluntary groups based in the county, regardless of size or location.

Groups must assist, support or enrich their community in some way, either socially or economically.  Judges will consider a wide range of factors when assessing entries and significant focus will be placed on impact on the community and innovative approaches.
