The Cromwell Association 2018 annual essay prize

Cromwell's statue outside Parliament, London

Cromwell’s statue outside the Houses of Parliament, London

This will be the third consecutive year of the essay competition and it is fast becoming an established part of the schools calendar. In the past we have been delighted with the standard of the essays submitted and it is wonderful to see so many young people stretching themselves to consider topics well beyond their A level syllabus. This year’s title is:

‘Does Cromwell’s legacy have any relevance in the 21st century?’

The competition is open to all 16 to 19 year olds, and essays no longer than 2000 words should be submitted to by 27th July 2018. Professor Gaunt will decide the final winner, who will receive a cheque for £150 and will see his or her essay published in Cromwelliana and on our website. If you know of any young people who might be interesting in submitting an essay, do encourage them to enter!
