Oxplore (www.oxplore.org) is running an ocean-themed essay competition for secondary school students in Wales and the South West of England. This is inspired by our latest Big Question: Should we put our ocean first? For a downloadable competition poster that you could display in your school, visit: https://bit.ly/2Ux0Fvz
We are inviting students in years 7-13 to write a 750-word response to one of the following essay titles:
Was an ‘Age of Exploration’ a positive development in world history?
Should we prioritise ocean over space exploration?
Should individuals take more responsibility for protecting the ocean?
All entries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 noon GMT on 1 December 2020.
Entries will be reviewed by our expert judging panel. There will be two age categories: years 7-9 and 10-13. The winners will receive £100 in Amazon vouchers and the runners-up will receive an ocean-themed goody bag.
