Traditionally, the jury awards two prizes (elocution and outreach) and the audience votes for their favourite candidate. However, this year, due to the high quality of the presentations, the jury decided to award a fourth prize, to reward originality:
Elisa Di Carlo, from University of Limerick won both the Audience Prize and the Jury Prize
Ricardo Valdes-Bango Curell, from Dublin City University, won the Originality Prize
Maude Baudraz, from Trinity College Dublin, won the Elocution Prize
Ayoub Lasri, from Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, won the Outreach Prize
