Your competition entries last week really got us thinking about the most important issues in the world – and after reading your ideas, we feel sure there are some future leaders amongst you! As always, there can only be two winners. This time they are…
- gregarious_dragonfruit of Pabna Cadet College in Bangladesh
who promised to prioritise education and women’s rights
- clever_parrot of The Sherwood School in the United Kingdom
who wants to make a difference in Hungary by promoting equality and improving the healthcare system
Both of your answers were very clearly explained and kept within the rules. Well done!
Welcome to the competition! There are three important rules:
- ONLY ENTER ONCE
- DON'T COPY
- FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
If you don't follow the rules, you will not be able to win and your account may be deactivated.
This competition will close at 5pm (UK time) on Wednesday for judging! We will announce two winners on Thursday. Good luck!
The news is often full of stories about world leaders - and the Hub is full of interesting discussions about what they should be doing and why. For example, this week we asked you to think about how you would respond to the situation in Sudan. But how easy is it to run your own country? And what should a leader's priorities be?
Your challenge this week is to imagine you are the leader of YOUR country and make TWO promises to your people about what you will do.
Start by thinking about what the people in your country need and what your leader could do to help.
For example, you could change laws, spend money or spread awareness about something.
Your entry should be no more than TWO or THREE sentences. You could structure your entry like this:
If I were the leader of MY country, I would promise to... BECAUSE...
My second promise would be... BECAUSE...
- Read the other competition entries first so that your idea is original
- Make sure your entry includes the word BECAUSE
- Explain how your promise would help to solve a problem
