Here are details of an essay competition for lower-sixth (Year 12) students that I discussed with my English Literature group earlier this week. Further discussion in the comments box would be welcomed.
You may already be aware that Peterhouse (the oldest College of the University of Cambridge) runs three Essay Competitions in History, Science and English each year for lower sixth students. The top prize in each essay competition is £500 and the second prize is £250. All winners and highly commended entrants are invited to a presentation at Peterhouse in late June/early July. This year’s competition is now live and the deadline for receipt of all essays is 21st March 2014.
