2016 RES Young Economist of the Year Essay Competition completes its first stage

What a day!

Esteemed Economics teachers from around the country met at Royal Grammar School Guildford today to complete the first stage of judging in the Royal Economic Society Essay Writing competition 2016.

Presented with over 1500 essays from pupils from all corners of the UK (and beyond), judges had to read through each entry and forward a list of the best essays for the final stage of judging later this month. All of the judges were impressed with the standard of writing, the level of research and the ability of so many pupils to make such carefully drafted arguments.

There were 6 essay titles set and we saw a huge number of well-crafted essays for each.

Thanks to RGS Guildford for hosting the event and a big thank you to the teachers who dedicated so much time to read through and then deliberate on the outcomes.

We're confident that we've forwarded a group of the most outstanding essays in the country. Good luck to the judges (Sir Charles Bean, Stephanie Flanders and Professor Jonathan Haskel) at RES when they make their decision about which of the essays win the top prizes.
