Some of Ireland’s bravest children from Donegal could get the chance to be recognised for their amazing work - all we need to do is nominate them!

Woman’s Way and Pharmaton Kiddi have teamed up to find Ireland’s bravest and most courageous children. Nominations are now open for the Woman’s Way Children’s Awards 2017 in association with Pharmaton Kiddi, and the search has gone nationwide.

The Awards, the first for the magazine, give parents, relatives, friends, charities and community groups the opportunity to recognise and reward the fantastic work children in Ireland have done.

Do you know an admirable boy or girl to nominate?

The eight categories in the awards are:

  • Young carer of the year
  • Young fundraiser of the year
  • Outstanding courage
  • Outstanding achievement
  • Overcoming adversity
  • Act of bravery
  • Superhero
  • Charity or group of the year

Open to children throughout Ireland aged five to 18, category winners will be invited to attend a special ceremony in September in Dublin. This is a celebration of achievement and an opportunity to recognise the sterling work that so many children are undertaking throughout the country.

The competition is open to all children aged 5-18

From those born with challenging conditions to excelling in the face of adversity, to young fundraisers who give charity their all, to young carers who are doing incredible, selfless work, all the winners will be celebrated and have exceptional, life inspiring stories to share.

On the Awards, Áine Toner, editor of Woman’s Way says: “We are very excited to launch the inaugural Children’s Awards and to work with such an appropriate brand as Pharmaton Kiddi. From those born with challenging, often life-limiting conditions to the young fundraisers making a difference, to those brave children working on overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles, we know that there will be exceptional stories to share.”

Emeka Maduka of Pharmaton comments: “We’re really excited to have Pharmaton Kiddi involved for the first year of the Woman’s Way Children’s Awards. It’s a great opportunity for us to shine a light on Ireland’s brightest stars, whatever their achievements. Pharmaton’s values are centred around dedication, perseverance and performance and these awards are the perfect way for us to reward both children and parents who embody these values.”
