The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2020

Every year, young citizens of the Commonwealth have the opportunity to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences of key global issues. This year’s theme is ‘Climate Action and the Commonwealth’.

To enter an essay, choose one of the options below and write what you think about it over the holiday.

  1. Imagine you are Planet Earth, what would you say to humans?
  2. A Blue Commonwealth: it is not too late to save our oceans. True or false? 
  3. In 2019, students in more than 100 countries walked out of school to protest climate change. How can young people get their voices heard and make a difference? 
  4. My planet, my place. 

All entrants will receive a certificate but if you win, you will get a trip to London!

Here is David Walliams and the Duchess of Cornwall talking about the competition.
