The Inspirational Young Person of the Year will celebrate those outstanding young people across Co Armagh, who work hard to inspire others with their energy and positive attitude.

Nominees may well have overcome obstacles and barriers to achieving their goals and will likely share many qualities; from drive and ambition, confidence and vision.

The Inspirational Young Person of the Year award will not only show what young people can achieve, it will also identify inspirational young adults who have chosen to embrace a better future.

Armagh I People of the Year Awards offers an opportunity to highlight talent and celebrate success

“McShane Packaging are both delighted and honoured to be sponsoring Armagh I’s ‘Inspirational Young Person of the Year award’ this year. This award recognises and celebrates the next generation of influential and extraordinary people”.

“The Armagh I ‘People of the Year Awards’ has once again given us an opportunity to take the time to shine a light on the people within our community who make a positive difference in so many lives. All too often these incredible achievements go unnoticed and unrewarded; so it’s a fantastic way to celebrate these wonderful people and give them the recognition they deserve”.

“We are really looking forward to learning about all the amazing nominees and looking at the ways they have inspired and changed our communities” said Philippa McShane, of McShane Packaging.

“Nominations are now open, so we would ask readers to think about the young people they know and admire and add them to the list; shine that light on them”!
