Trinity College has an annual Robert Walker essay competition open to students in Year 12 or Year 13 (the final two years of school).
The title set for this year's competition is:
"Should people be able to sell their bodily organs (e.g., their kidney(s) or liver)?"
If working on this question appeals to you, do ensure that you read the competition details on the Trinity College website. The deadline for entries is Monday 20 April 2015.
Essay competitions can be a good opportunity to get your teeth into an interesting and relevant question and to develop your research and argument skills. You will see in the competition details that the assessors will be looking at a range of factors, including how well your argument is sustained, the quality of your language, and how well you have used appropriate supporting material and facts in evidence for your arguments. Of course, these are questions it is worth asking yourself about all of your written work, whether for a competition or not!
