Ireland’s Top Teens ran for 3 seasons on TV3. For this aspirational TV format for all the family, Sideline teamed up with Foróige, Ireland’s biggest youth development organisation, to give Irish teenagers a chance to showcase their amazing contribution to society.
Sponsored whole heartedly by Permanent TSB, the Foróige Youth Citizenship Programme challenged the negative perception of young people that is often reported in the media and the TV shows showcased the winners of the Foróige ‘Youth Citizenship Awards’ in a special 2-part series.
In the first programme, viewers saw the amazing and inspirational work carried out from the cream of Ireland’s youth as we revealed the 10 regional winners who contested the final. In the second programme a week later the overall winner of the Award was announced at a special live show in Dublin’s Helix Theatre.
Karen Coster hosted the Live Shows and the show featured the nations’s top stars celebrating the great achievements – including Bono, Louis Walsh, Saoirse Ronan and Una Healy.
On the back of our successful partnership with Permanent TSB & Foróige, Sideline is keen to open their doors to other major sponsors, brands and groups to create original programming and formats with a view carry their message to all platforms and broadcast screens.
