Commonwealth essay competition for students of all ages – 60/2023

By February 7, 2023 No Comments

The Government is inviting entries from children who are attending school in Gibraltar, or further studies in the United Kingdom, for an essay competition on Gibraltar’s relationship with the Commonwealth.

The prize for the winning entry, in each of the four age categories, will be £ 150.

The entries will be divided into four, so that younger children do not compete against older ones. The first category will be for Lower Primary, the second for Upper Primary, the third category for students of comprehensive and college age, and the fourth one for students from Gibraltar aged 18 or over in full time education in the United Kingdom.

Those who want to take part should write a short 500 word essay on the theme of “Why the Commonwealth is important to Gibraltar?” and submit this by email to commonwealth@gibraltar.gov.gi

Submissions should contain the name, address, contact number, email address, age and the name of the educational institution as well as year of study.

The closing date for entries is 12 noon on Friday 3 March.
