History of Parliament schools competitions 2014: your turn this year?

Recently we held the prize day for our 2013 schools competition. Our three winners, Ami Ganatra, Jessica Welchman (Key Stage Three) and James Heale (A level), along with their teachers and families came to Westminster for a special tour of the Palace and to receive their prizes from the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow MP. You can read more about our winners in this post.

Here are our winners (with our Director, Dr Paul Seaward), together in Westminster Hall before the tour:

So, you teachers and students out there, could this be you next time? We’ve just launched our Key Stage Three and A level competitions for this year. We will ask our KS3 entrants to either write a piece on the Reformation in their local area or on Britain’s entrance into World War One. For A Level students, we want to read your parliamentary or political history essays.

Good luck – I look forward to all your entries!
