2 pupils win prizes at prestigious NCH Essay Competition Awards
Joshua Platt (Linacre, 6a) and Alex McGovern (Marlowe, 6a) both won awards in this year’s National College of the Humanities London Essay Competition which had over 5,000 entries from across Europe.
Top prizes for the shortlisted entrants ranged from £1,000 to £250 in what is an extremely competitive contest.
Joshua was first runner-up in the Law category which set the question ‘Should the law allow Government to strike special tax deals with certain companies in order to attract foreign investment?’. Alex, meanwhile, was named joint second runner-up in the Politics and International Relations category answering ‘How has warfare changed since WWII?’.
Congratulations to both Joshua and Alex!
