2023-24 Perse Aristotelian Award essay competition launched

The Perse is once again inviting youngsters nationwide to display their intellectual curiosity with the launch of the 2023-24 Aristotelian Award competition.

The Aristotelian Award research essay competition is aimed at Year 9 pupils across the UK and is divided into two sections – arts/humanities and sciences – with a choice of five essay titles in each category ready to be tackled.

Cash prizes are on offer with the winners of each category receiving £70. Four pupils in each category will be highly commended and receive £20 each.

Perse Head of Research Hazel Knight said: “We are thrilled to launch this year’s Aristotelian Award research competition and we look forward to reading a wide range of insightful and thought-provoking essays.

“We hope that everyone will be able to find a title that interests them from our choice of 10 questions.

“Do check out the resources page on our Perse Research website over the coming weeks where we will keep adding advice and information to help students with their research.”
