The Search is on for Ireland’s ‘Science Hero’
Nominate your ‘Science Hero’ as part of the Guaranteed Irish ‘Hero’ Awards, which recognise the work of people who have been ambassadors for Ireland both at home and abroad.
Members of the public are invited to nominate their science hero by using #GIhero on Twitter or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline of Friday, 9th June 2017. Artist, Maser and Captain of Irish Women’s Rugby team, Niamh Briggs both pictured below were the first awardees for the contributions to art and sport, respectively.
The remaining Guaranteed Irish Heroes will be awarded, following a public nominations process. Members of the public are being asked to nominate individuals across the following categories: sport, science, music, technology and food. An outside panel of experts in each field will review a shortlist and decide the Guaranteed Irish Hero for that category. To nominate a Guaranteed Irish Hero, log on to: www.guaranteedirish.ie or nominate and follow the campaign across social media with the dedicated hashtag: #GIhero.
