Thank you to everyone who took part in this weeks competition.
Our Primary winner is sympathetic_desert of Crampton Primary School, for their 100 words that focussed on specific campaign pledges and promises. It showed good thinking about the particular challenges the country is facing.
Our Secondary winner is careful_science of Faringdon Community College, who used their 100 words to speak about the goals facing the world and how their role as Prime Minister could relate to the 'bigger picture.'
Well done to both of you!
To mark the start of our new Issue 'Politicians and Power', your first competition asks you to put yourself in the shoes of the most powerful person in the country!
Imagine you have just been elected as the UK's Prime Minister and you are standing on the steps of 10 Downing Street, facing the cameras. You are about to make your first speech as leader of the country.
What would be your first 100 words?
Remember, this is the first the country is hearing of you since becoming their leader. What would you say?
- You might want to speak up about what matters most to you and what you want to change
- Or you might want to speak up about the responsibilities of your position and the role of a country's leader
- Or you might want to talk about the challenges you will face and how you intend to deal with them
Or something else entirely. Remember, the limit is 100 words - so choose them carefully! The competition closes at 10.30am on Friday 10th January. Good luck!
