IDEAS AND INSPIRATION FOR YEOTY 2021
Projects may be in any area of economics. Please view previous winning entries at this link for examples and inspiration.
This year we will continue to promote an inquiry-based approach by students. While we encourage students to integrate the use of digital media into their presentations the emphasis is on the quality of the investigation and economic analysis. We also encourage creativity and will accept submissions in a variety of forms such as essay, report, short video/documentary, powerpoint, prezi etc. The points below are important to consider when planning and preparing your submissions.
Research questions must be relevant to economics and if you are applying be considered for a special interest category such as IGEES or Central Bank of Ireland, the research question must have particular relevance to their respective remits – further details can be found by viewing the PDST YEOTY Teacher CPD webinar at https://www.youngeconomist.ie/
Projects must clearly link to at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals – https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/
Both the research question and motivation for choosing this question should be clearly stated and easy to understand at the outset of the project.
Students should clearly articulate the useful information discovered from the data that may be used to inform the conclusion and demonstrate support for any decision-making.
Should include a summary of the analysis that either answers the research question or compels deeper or
The presentation should be clear, informative and engaging. Information should be accurate and referenced appropriately where relevant.
