We are delighted to announce that Citizens Information Services has sponsored the Website of the Year award at The National Student Media Awards 2021!

The Citizens Information Services is funded and supported by the Citizens Information Board which supports the provision of information, advice and advocacy on a broad range of public and social services.

The national network of Citizens Information Centres (CICs) overseen by regional Citizens Information Services (CIS) companies provide free and confidential information on all your rights and entitlements. Likewise, the Citizens Information Phone Service on 0761 07 4000 is available Monday to Friday, 9am-8pm.

The Citizens Information Services website, citizensinformation.ie provides direct, online, easy access to information that students need to know about health, employment advice, educational supports and housing. Last year over 15.4 million users turned to the website for their information needs as a source they could trust. What’s more, Citizens Information shares regular updates via its social media channels. In 2020 alone, their Facebook and Twitter pages garnered more than 24.8 million impressions.

Citizens Information Services understands the importance of an easy access trusted information source, which is why they have chosen to support the student(s) producing the best website.

We are delighted to have Citizens Information Services as this year’s sponsor for the Website of the Year award and best of luck to all who submit their work.
