History of Parliament Schools Competitions 2017

The details for our annual schools competitions are now available! For the thirteenth year running we will run a competition for 16-18 year olds (A level students). The winner will receive a small money prize and will be invited to Westminster with members of their family and teachers for the presentation.

This year we are reviewing our schools offering, so we are not running a Key Stage Three competition.  Our specially-written KS3 resources are still available on this website, focussing on the Reformation and Political Reform. If you would like to contribute to our schools competition review, please Contact Us.

Our Sixth Form competition is again an essay competition, with the prize awarded to the best essay on a subject of the candidate's own choice related to the parliamentary or political history of Britain and Ireland.

The winner will receive a cash prize and be invited to Westminster to receive it. The closing date is after the summer holidays to give students who have just finished their GCSEs and are preparing for their A Levels a chance to enter as well. The closing date is 29 September 2017.

Good luck to all the entrants!
