What does research mean to you?
Researchers at the Oxford University would like to know what you think of when you think about “research”. To find this out, we are running a writing competition for 11-16 year olds at schools in Oxfordshire on the subject “research”.
You can use any form of writing, but it must start “Research is …” and be no longer than 50 words.
Do you want to write a micro-story or mini-essay? Perhaps a poem or a news article? Maybe an advert or prose? Your writing can be narrative or descriptive; expository or persuasive – whatever you want.
A £50 voucher (Amazon, Blackwell’s or high street) will be awarded to the winning entry, via their parents/guardians, in each year group category:
- Year 7
- Year 8
- Year 9
- Year 10
- Year 11
In addition, all winners and their parents/guardians will be invited to a Grand Prize Giving Ceremony at Oxford University.
The competition is open to everyone in Years 7 – 11 who attends a school in Oxfordshire.
