The Society and the Financial Times are delighted to announce the winner and highly commended students of their joint Schools Essay Competition that asked students to discuss the geographical story behind a chosen set or sets of data related to sustainability and climate change.
The competition sought thoughtful and well-argued responses to the topic, which was based around the COP-26 2021 aims ‘to increase climate ambition, build resilience and lower emissions’, and was open to all A Level geography students aged 16 – 18 in the UK. Well done to all those who took part and for working so hard on their entries.
The overall winner is:
Reuben Meadows (All Saints RC School, York)
In addition, given the range and depth of entries received, the Society and Financial Times have recognised four other essays submitted with highly commended awards:
Benjamin Xavier Jacob (St Paul's School, London)
Jack Doran (Birkenhead School, Oxton)
Marina Semple (St Helen and St Katharine, Abingdon)
Clara Zibell (Southbank International School, London)
The winner and highly commended students will be presented with a certificate and invited to an online awards ceremony. The winner will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher.
The five essays have been published on our website here.
