champion_duck and loving_quince
Congratulations to our winners this week, who explained their choices clearly and succinctly. We also liked how they made a choice and stood behind their opinions, rather than sitting on the fence. This can be difficult to do! Excellent work, and well done to every who entered during a very busy BNC Live build-up!
WEEKLY COMPETITION #19
This week our competition focuses on reasoning. We'd like you to choose what you think is the main reason to punish someone for a crime. Make your choice in the poll below. Then, in the comments section, explain which one you chose and why. Remember to use good reasons to explain your choice! Good reasons are true, relevant and support by evidence or examples.
For example: I chose E because if we didn't have punishments, then people would think it's okay to commit a crime because they can get away with it. For example, if you didn't risk getting a prison sentence for burglary, you might go ahead and break into someone's house because there aren't negative consequences.
Good luck! Winners will be announced on Friday.
