We have a question for all our entrants…
The Orwell Youth Prize believes wholeheartedly in the power of great political writing. But we also support ideas and the potential of the collective voice of our entrants. As a result, we are asking every entrant this year to submit a short response (up to 1000 characters) to the following question alongside their individual entry:
- What one positive change would you like to see to help tackle the climate crisis?
