A Kerry student has been nominated for one of Ireland’s top youth volunteer awards.

Elaine Nagle, a student in Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra in Rathmore, is among the 20 finalists.

The Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards honour students for outstanding acts of volunteerism and the positive contribution they make in their local communities.

Elaine Nagle was nominated for her volunteer efforts in the Rathmore Social Active Group, where she fundraised for the local day care, organised events for the elderly and assisted with the Chernobyl children’s outings.

The awards ceremony will take place on March 28th at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
