climate change essay competitionHow the competition works

The Centre encourages learners to submit works that deal with issues that are personal to them and to look critically at the rights that have had a direct impact on their lives.
Up to three entries are permitted per author, across categories. Each entry must be submitted on a separate electronic entry form. However, where more than one entry is submitted, only one entry will be selected and published.
