The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2016


BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The overarching theme for 2016 is ‘An Inclusive Commonwealth’, which is also the 2016 Commonwealth Year theme, and a topical theme for today’s youth. Both Senior and Junior topics give young people the opportunity to think about aspects of the theme such as: the significance of community; the importance of diversity and difference; the question of belonging; the values of tolerance, respect and understanding; and the sense of shared responsibility that exists within the Commonwealth today. The topics are a chance to develop critical thinking and to express views in a creative manner.
Read the Senior and Junior topics.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE? Open to all Commonwealth citizens aged under 18.

RULES AND REGULATIONS: For more information about the competition, please visit Terms and Conditions and Frequently Asked Questions.

REWARD OFFERED: Prizes have traditionally been awarded only to the first prize winners in the Senior and Junior categories and also vary year by year. This means we are not able to confirm what the prizes will be until after the winners are announced in September 2016. Past prizes have included certificates, resources for winner's school, visits to Cambridge University, a trip to London and a week of activities, work experience at international organisations, and having your entry featured in worldwide media.
