The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2016

March 29, 2016


4100 views








The Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) has a rich history of nurturing the creative talents of young people around the Commonwealth, promoting literacy and expression by celebrating excellence and imagination.

The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition , run in partnership with Cambridge University Press, gives young people from diverse backgrounds a platform to express their views about the world and their dreams for the future.

This year’s theme, ‘An Inclusive Commonwealth’, asks young people to reflect on what it means to live in a diverse but tolerant, equitable and fair society. The topics for both the Junior and Senior categories allow for the exploration of this theme in a number of ways, including: 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 competition is open to young writers aged 18 and under who are living in, or a national of, a Commonwealth country or territory. Special dispensation applies to entrants from Hong Kong, The Gambia, Ireland and Zimbabwe who are entitled to enter the competition. All entries must be in English and are to be submitted online. The deadline for entries is 1st May 2016. The flyer can be downloaded for display in classrooms, to share with friends, colleagues and interested parties, and for reference to the topics.

    Submission Deadline: 1st May 2016

    The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2016 is now open for entries; submissions can be made until 1st May 2016.

    This year’s theme invites young people to think about whether or not it is possible to be living responsibly and tolerantly in an increasingly interconnected Commonwealth.
    Through the world’s oldest schools’ international writing competition, the Royal Commonwealth Society provides an opportunity for young people to share their stories and have their voices heard.

    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.
