Epsom & Ewell Borough Council has launched a competition for children aged 11+ who are resident or schooled in the Borough.

As part of its programme for Local Democracy Week (which takes place later this year), the Council has launched the ‘Epsom & Ewell Secondary School Challenge’.

The challenge is to produce a piece of work in a medium of the child’s choice - for example a written essay, a film or video or a piece of art. The main judging criteria will be impact, imagination & originality and relevance to the selected topic; If Emily Davison was alive today, for what would she be campaigning?

Councillor Clive Woodbridge explains “We want this to become an annual competition, with a different relevant topic each year. We have put the challenge together so that as many children as possible can enter, giving them the opportunity to use the full depth of their imagination and creativity. The topic for this year aims to promote discussion and thought about the legacy of Emily Davison on the centenary of the suffragette’s death, following the infamous incident at the Derby”.

Entries should be submitted before 13 September 2013 to Epsom Town Hall and full details of the Challenge can be found on the Epsom & Ewell Borough Council website.
