Intel® Pride of Place Competition

At Intel, we strive to be an asset to our local communities and value our neighbouring towns here in North Kildare, the home of our main campus in Ireland. For a number of years, we have supported our local towns through the Intel® Pride of Place competition and we are excited to announce the launch of the seventh year of this community initiative.

About the Competition

The Intel® Pride of Place competition is about supporting projects that enrich the lives of people in our local communities of Leixlip, Celbridge, and Maynooth. The competition invites people to share their project ideas to help improve local organisations while also benefitting the local community more broadly. To enter the competition, simply share your idea and explain why it deserves to receive funding from Intel Ireland and how this idea will enrich the lives of people in your community.

A panel of 3-5 judges, made up of business professionals and community representatives, will assess each submission before meeting as a team to deliberate and decide on the winning projects. A number of ideas will be funded, with up to €5,000 being donated to each of the successful organisations to complete their project.

The application window for the Pride of Place Competition 2021 opens on April 12th. Applications will be accepted until May 7th, 2021.

What Is a Community Project?

A community project is any idea from an individual or collaborative enterprise that would benefit your local community. Your idea could be anything from encouraging biodiversity in your town or school, to restoring a community area, or supporting an existing club who’d like to expand their services. The most important aspect of the project is that directly improves your community.
