Applicants will be notified by Dec 31st whether their application has been accepted. If we are one of the lucky ones this will lead essentially to a bidding war on-line and by text.
Each branch in Ireland has been allocated a budget of €10,000 which will be divided between their three winners. The winners will be chosen by the voting public following a media campaign to secure the most votes.
This will include members of the local and possibly national media promoting the applicants who get through the first round. As a result of the publicity campaign members of the general public will vote for the most worthy cause. The award of €10,000 will be split between the three highest vote takers, 1st €5,000, 2nd €3,000 and 3rd €2,000.
We will be keeping a careful eye on things here at the Offaly Dyslexia Group and will let you know if we are one of the lucky ones. When we find out, you will be the next to know, meanwhile keep your fingers crossed!
