National Youth Parliament Competition revived

The Citizenship Foundation and Norwich Union are delighted to announce their new partnership in the National Youth Parliament Competition.

With a decade-long track record, the National Youth Parliament Competition offers secondary students across the UK a unique insight into the workings of democracy, through producing a video of a mock parliamentary session. As well as being highly enjoyable for all involved, the competition supports the citizenship curriculum, which is now statutory in England for 11-16 year olds. The competition will re-launch next summer for the academic year 200304, incorporating exciting new elements and complementary activities to encourage young people's political engagement. Tony Breslin, Chief Executive of the Citizenship Foundation, said: 'The National Youth Parliament Competition is an example of citizenship education at its best: active, empowering and relevant. Our new partnership with Norwich Union ensures that it will continue to go from strength to strength.'
