This essay competition may be of interest to my more youthful-readership ;-)
There's a £1000 prize at stake and the chance to appear in print in the inaugural Thomas Hare Essay Competition. It’s an opportunity to write on topics ranging from the future of local democracy, gender and diversity, to the case for elections in policing.
The competition is open to anyone in full-time education. It closes on 30 March 2009 .
