Lower 6th Girton competition!

The annual Girton College Cambridge Humanities essay competition has been launched.

Produce a written response to one or more of the set objects – the maximum word count is 1,800 words (although there is no expectation of writing that much, especially for creative writing).

You can produce an essay, a poem, a short story… Anything, apparently.

See the poster with the set objects here.

You can see a more in-depth description of the six objects here.

Competition Rules

• The word limit is 1800 words (though creative writing in particular may be shorter). Include a word count, and a list of references if applicable.

• Submissions must relate to one or more of the Lawrence Room objects.

• Submissions should be typed in English in a standard font, lines 1.5 spaced, and every page should be marked with the entrant’s name.

• Submissions are to be posted to: Schools Liaison Assistant, Girton College, Cambridge, CB3 0JG with a completed cover sheet.

Download the cover sheet.

Teachers must sign the cover sheet to certify that the submission is the entrant’s own work and does not replicate anything submitted for examination.

Closing date
The closing date for entries is 15th March 2013.

Send me an e-mail or see me in school for more details or help.
