Description

Each year we hold an essay competition for students who are yet to complete their A-Levels, IB or equivalent, i.e. those entering years 12 and 13, or equivalent. This year the essay question is "What is the most important lesson governments can learn from the Covid-19 epidemic?" and the deadline is 1 October. The essay should be no more than 1,000 words long, in order to not detract from the students' studies, but could also be completed over the summer break. This essay competition was created to act as an outreach effort by the LSEUPR and as an opportunity to expose A-Level and equivalent students to university-style writing assignments in a relevant and engaging way, having recognised the desire for this during our own time at school. In addition, this presents an ideal piece of experience and name recognition for students wishing to apply to university to include within their UCAS personal statements. Exact details of the competition including how to apply can be found at the link below. Prizes are as follows: 1st Place Prize: £100 Amazon Voucher Certificate signed by Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey, Head of the LSE Department of Government Essay published in the LSE Undergraduate Political Review blog The opportunity to attend and to present your essay at the LSEUPR Annual Conference 2nd Place Prize: £50 Amazon Voucher Certificate signed by Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey, Head of the LSE Department of Government Essay published in the LSEUPR blog 3rd Place Prize: £25 Amazon Voucher Certificate signed by Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey, Head of the LSE Department of Government Essay published in the LSEUPR blog
