Please print a copy of these rules, and submit a signed and dated copy with your application form.

What is the Competition For?

1. Intel Ireland Limited (“Intel”) is holding this competition for community organisations to have the opportunity to put forward their ideas for a Project that can help improve their organisation while also benefitting their local community. The idea could be anything from setting up a youth café that benefits other community members during the day, what about restoring an old building in your town and turning it into a new meeting space for community groups. It could be adding a new feature to the town that would drive tourism in the area or passing on skill from one generation to another. It could also be an idea of how to use technology to make your community more “smart” such as apps to show traffic flow, parking spaces indicator or when to water plants. Projects will be judged on the criteria set out below.

2. Each winning Project(s) will donate €5,000 (five thousand euro) exclusive of VAT to be spent on completing the Project.

3. All applicants will be invited to an awards event at our Leixlip Campus on Thursday May 11th at 7pm where the winners will be announced.
