FanTAXtic 2020

Are you in transition year (“TY”)? Would you like to take part in a team competition where you and your school could win fantastic prizes? Why not enter our FanTAXtic competition?

The FanTAXtic competition requires a team of 3 students in transition year, to submit a 2-minute video giving their thoughts on a tax issue.

As a transition year student, you may not have huge exposure to the Irish tax system. Therefore, you may not realise that tax is really important for families, businesses, the Irish and global economy. This year we want to hear your thoughts on how tax could be used to tackle climate change.

Members of the winning team will each receive a €200 One4All voucher. The school of the winning team will receive a €500 cash prize. The competition is also a great addition to a student’s CV.

The following entry form must be received by the Irish Tax Institute by 5pm on Friday, 17th April 2020 along with the video submission:

Further details on the entry requirements and terms and conditions are also contained in the entry form.
