The competition is now closed
We invited UK school and college students, aged between 16 and 19, to send us a blog of up to 500 words on this year's theme: the economy and climate change.
The competition closed on Friday 31 January. We will email the winners in April.
Staff from the Bank of England and the Financial Times will judge the entries. They’ll be looking for originality, clarity, analytical insight and good writing.
For our 2018/19 competition, the theme was the future of money. Read the winning blogs.
