The Newnham Philosophy Essay Prize is open to all girls currently in Year 12 (Lower Sixth) at a UK school. It is designed to give students the opportunity to think and write about philosophy and philosophical matters in the broadest sense, while developing their independent study and writing skills.
This prize may be of particular interest to those either currently studying, or considering studying, Philosophy, but we welcome entries from interested students studying any combination of subjects
Each of the Newnham Essay Prizes has a first prize of £400, a second prize of £200, and third prize of £100. Good essays will present a clear argument using specific examples, but beyond this many different approaches are welcome.
The cover sheet should also be uploaded to this webform. Please ensure that a school/college representative has completed the appropriate section. Entries will not be valid without this information.
For any queries, please contact Sophie Parry (Schools Liaison & Outreach Officer) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 01223 330471.
