The Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition 2019

The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2019 is now open for entries; submissions can be made until 1st June 2019.

 The theme for 2019 is 'A Connected Commonwealth'.

Building on the 2018 theme of Towards a Common Future, this year’s topics call upon young people to consider how they can work to use cultural, technological and environmental connections for positive change across the Commonwealth.  It asks young people to consider the potential of the Commonwealth in strengthening the vast and varied links between citizens.

The Competition is an opportunity for all young Commonwealth citizens and residents, regardless of region, education or background, to share ideas, celebrate their story and have their voice heard - all whilst developing key skills. For 2019, we want to hear from more young people across the Commonwealth, all stories and voices are important.

The competition is open to all citizens and residents of the Commonwealth aged 18 and under and runs until 1 June 2019.
