Congratulations to our winners this week! There were tons of creative entries, and strangely some suggestions for Queen Elizabeth II… who is already on every note!
Our primary school winner this week suggested David Attenborough, who lots of people had chosen, but they gave very clear and well-written reasons for their choice. Our secondary school winner was also well-reasoned and a wild card too, Boudica! You can read their full entries in the orange boxes below. Well done to everyone who entered!
WEEKLY COMPETITION #8:
This week sees the launch of our new Issue, so get ready for our first competition with a bit of a money theme! The Bank of England have announced that there’s a new £50 note being designed, so we’d like to know...
Who should go on the back of the new banknote and why?
Jane Austen and Winston Churchill are two examples of people who already feature.
Use your curiosity to research someone who might not be obvious to everyone, and make sure you give good reasons to explain why you think they should live in people’s purses!
You can read how the Bank makes their decision here.
Good luck! Winners will be announced on Friday.
