We wish Jessica Oakley O'Kelly (5th Year) and Anastasia Papakosta (5th Year) the very best of luck as they represent the school with their entries to the Young Economist of the Year competition.
This competition invites students to explore real life issues through their projects and facilitates students in developing greater economic literacy and in understanding how economics relates to everyday life.
'The purpose of the YEOTY awards is to showcase, acknowledge and celebrate the work of students and teachers in planning, preparing and sharing their projects.'
The Young Economist of the Year 2021 is supported by the Irish Economics Association (IEA), the Irish Government Economic and Evaluation Service (IGEES), the Central Bank of Ireland, the Department of Communications, Climate Action & Environment and the Economics and Education Departments in all of the major third level institutions in Ireland.
The students produced a report and prepared a power point on their respective topics:
Jessica's is on: 'The effects of Covid 19 on income inequality in Ireland and the long-term consequences' while Anastasia prepared hers on 'The impact of austerity on economic and social sustainability in Greece'.
