Awards & Scholarships

Recognising outstanding students


Exciting news this year we are running our Awards programme earlier than usual for all of our schools that registered with the Foundation for Flag Day to submit an entry to our Kerry Group Online Awards Programme which also means the winners will get to feature not only on our website but in the Irish Independent Supplement The People's Flag on March 12th 2021.

By entering the Awards programme, we are hoping that your students will learn about both the Irish Flag and its meaning for peace, and about the flags of all the nationalities in your school and the meaning and symbolism behind these flags.

This year's entries can be interpreted by your school in whichever way you would like.  We really would like you to be creative and have fun with this project! Projects can be submitted by individual or group. 

We have some fantastic prizes this year, ranging from school supplies, airpods to iPads and many more!

Flag Day 16th March & Flag Packs 2021

Later this month we will keep you posted on the flag pack for your school which will be delivered before Flag Day March 16th and we very much hope that restrictions will allow all of us to come together from afar and take part in a virtual or socially distant Flag raising ceremony. 

Please email any queries you may have for the attention of Sarah at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

With the very best of luck to you all, and do keep safe.
