Chance to Chancellor 2011 challenge now live
The Citizenship Foundation's 'Paying For It' programme, run in partnership with Aviva, has launched a new online challenge encouraging 14 to 18 year olds across the UK to voice their opinions on issues facing the Chancellor in the run up to the Budget 2011.
The challenge allows young people to decide where they would cut and invest government money in a bid to reduce the deficit and get the economy back on track.
All entries will be used to create the first ever Youth Budget, to be launched in March, representing young people’s economic priorities for the future.
Alongside the web challenge there is also the opportunity for young people to enter a competition through justifying their Budget choices. The best entries will be invited to the presentation of the Youth Budget at HM Treasury and the overall winner will become the Youth Chancellor and have their Budget published in The Times newspaper.
See the website for more details. The challenge closes on 4 March 2011.
