THE PRIZE COMPETITION IS NOW OPEN
The Prize Competition is for pupils in Year’s 7 to 11 in England and Wales; P7 to S4 in Scotland; and Year’s 8 to 12 in Northern Ireland, although anyone may try it. The Prize Competition allows us to choose the best 12 schools (based on the scores from the top 8 pupils) who will go through to the Live Final in July. It is open from 3rd November 2014 and 30th April 2015. Schools that wish to take part must register first.
