School students across the UK are invited to write a blog on British politics, in a competition run jointly by the Political Studies Association and the Financial Times.

Applicants, who should be students aged 16-19 in school or college, have until May 31 to write up to 600 words on the question “Is British politics broken?”

The winning article will be published in the Financial Times and the PSA’s Political Insight magazine. Entries will be judged on clarity and style, originality, insight and evidence of research.

The competition is part of the FT’s schools programme, which provides free access to the FT for students aged 16-19, their teachers and schools around the world. Supporting ideas and data for entrants can be found in the FT including its UK politics and policy coverage.

Full details and information on submission are available on the competition website.
