The Citizenship Foundation are looking for entries in two competitions that allow people aged up to 18 years old to address issues in their lives .


Take a hands-on approach to journalism and politics. The National Youth Parliament and National Political Journalism competitions are open to entries from 11-18 year olds until 15 December 2005. Students can address issues such as smoking in public places, ID cards, student top-up fees and voting at 16.

Participate in the National Political Journalism Competition, pose as a media professional and create real news pieces. Small teams or individuals can tackle a local, national or international political issue of their choice and produce a newspaper, TV or radio article. Alternatively, enter the National Youth Parliament Competition and produce a video of your own parliamentary debate, groups of 20 to 300 are welcome.

Entries for the journalism competition are due in by 09/02/05 and entries for the youth parliament competition by 23/03/05. The competitions are an exciting way to learn about politics, current issues and the media. For details see www.citizenshipfoundation.org.uk. Contact Rebecca Galbraith (Project Officer) on 0207 566 4157 or e-mail [email protected].

    are the dates supposed to be 2006 and not 2005?

    The dates are correct, but that's the date to actually register to take part, rather than to have finished an entry. So once you've entered your sent an entry pack which will have much more info and the closing date for final entries.
