History Competition Extended

In light of the current school closures, the deadline for entries for the Decade of Centenaries Irish History Competition for Primary and Post-Primary Schools 2020 has now been extended to Friday 29th May.

As part of the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ commemorations, schools and students at all levels of primary and post-primary schools across Ireland are invited, in the 2019-2020 school year, to enter the annual schools’ history competition. The selected themes have a particular link to events of a century ago across the island of Ireland.

Categories


This year, at both primary and post-primary levels, projects are invited under the following general headings. Please note that all categories can incorporate a local/regional studies theme:

  • Revolution in Ireland – a study of a political/revolutionary event from the 1912–1922 period, a particular aspect of the event, or an individual/group/organisation associated with it. As with the other categories, this can incorporate a local/regional studies theme.
  • Ireland and the First World War – a study of the Irish experience of the war from the perspective of an individual or group. This could involve a focus on a particular battle, an individual participant’s story or a consideration of the entire 1914–1918 period.
  • Women during the revolutionary period in Ireland – a study of a particular individual/group/organisation/movement striving to improve the quality of women’s lives or involved in revolutionary activity in Ireland in the 1912–1922 period
  • War of Independence – a study of a political/revolutionary event from the 1919–1921 period, a particular aspect of the event, or an individual/group/organisation associated with it.

Projects must be submitted online to the following email address: historycompetition@ucc.ie. Each project must include a cover sheet at the front (a template cover sheet is available to download below) and a bibliography listing the sources consulted.
