Awarded to the student producing the best journalism relating to health in any form of student media.

Journalism plays a vital role in informing the public about health concerns and advice. That role is now more important than ever where we’re constantly hearing about the importance of health, vaccines, immunity, and restrictions.

We are looking for student media that can improve the knowledge of the average reader and gain a wider understanding of the topic.

If you have written anything health-related, whether it’s the importance of destigmatising mental health in Ireland or the way we now live due to Covid-19, we want to hear from you! Your article must have been published since February 2020.
