The aim of the competition is to promote discussion of the values of Parliamentary democracy and the political process. This year, aspiring writers were asked to put forward ideas for inclusion in the election manifestos of the three main political parties.

ASCL would encourage all schools and colleges to get involved in the competition in 2011. For more details, visit www.writenow.org.uk
