Concurso de redação da Commonwealth da Rainha 2019 para Jovens Escritores das Nações da Commonwealth

Prazo de inscrição: maio 1st 2019

The Royal Commonwealth Society is pleased to announce the theme for The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2019 XCHARX A Connected Commonwealth.

Building on the 2018 theme of Para um futuro comum, this year’s topics ask young writers to explore the shared values, interests and experiences across the network, and how they can use this to make positive change. It calls on young people to consider the potential of the Commonwealth in strengthening the cast and varied links between citizens.

For 2019, we want to hear from all young people, regardless of schooling, education or region. All stories and voices are important.

The competition is open to all citizens and residents of the Commonwealth aged 18 and under and runs from Monday 5 November until 1 June 2019. All entrants receive a Certificate of Participation and one Winner and Runner-up from the Senior and Junior categories will win a trip to London for a week of educational and cultural events.

Offline submissions are very difficult to process and can mean that your entry arrives after the Competition closing date. We will only accept an offline entry where the person submitting has no access to internet and is unable to submit online.

If you are submitting your entry by post, please complete an formulário de inscrição in block capitals and attach it to the front of your essay. Entries should be sent to your nearest postal hub, details of which are listed below.
