The annual Accenture Maths Awards in association with the Irish Mathematics Teachers Association is an award given to three students who achieve the most meritorious results in the national Leaving Certificate Maths exam. Each student receives a scholarship and Analytics Masterclass with a Management Scientist from the Analytics Innovation Centre in Dublin.
In March 2014, Minister of State, Department of Enterprise, Jobs & Innovation and Department of Education & Skills, Seán Sherlock and Graham Healy, Managing Director of Accenture, presented the annual Accenture Maths Award in University College Cork (UCC), to the three chosen students for outstanding performance. This was followed by a presentation on the TY Analytics programme by Philip O'Mahoney, highlighting the importance of STEM subjects for students, coupled with the current demand for maths and data science in the marketplace.
The 2013 winners were Conor Moloney, Christian Brothers College, Cork, Brendan O'Brien, Douglas Community School and Darragh Rice, St. Brendan's College, Killarney.
The 2012 winners were Philip Clarke, St. Mary Diocesan School, Drogheda, Fiona McCarthy, Mount Anville Secondary School, Dublin and Joe O'Sullivan, Blackrock College, Dublin.
