International Women’s Day Writing Competition 2018

We are delighted to announce the winners of our International Women’s Day Writing Competition 2018

This competition invited Year 12 pupils in local schools and colleges to submit an article (700 and 1000 words) on ‘What single change would most improve the lives of women and girls in your local community and why’. The winning entry is receiving a prize of £100 and the runner up will receive £50.

The four judges on the panel were very impressed with the quality of the entries and were really pleased to see that the articles encompassed the values and vision of our Soroptimist organisation. Considerable time was spent discussing the merits of each entry in order to identify the winner and runner up and the judges decided to give certificates for three highly commended entries because they felt the quality of these also deserved recognition.

Here are the winners
