Meg Munn MP supports National Youth Parliament Competition

Meg Munn MP supports National Youth Parliament Competition

The competition - a team of 11-18 year olds recreate the parliamentary chamber, take on the roles of government, opposition and backbenchers, and make a 20-minute video of their parliamentary session. This must include a (Prime) Minister’s Question Time, a debate on a mock Bill (on a national issue of their choice) and an element of Parliamentary procedure.

Organised by the Citizenship Foundation, the competition helps bring to life the process of politics and government.  Entries are judged by political journalists and MPs from across the benches. Open to 11-18 year olds nationwide, thousands have taken part over the years. 

As well as being an enjoyable experience for all involved, the National Youth Parliament Competition supports the compulsory Citizenship curriculum at Key Stage 3 & 4 in England and statutory elements of the curriculum in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Meg Munn MP is supporting the competition and urging local Sheffield schools to get involved.

“I very much hope that Sheffield schools take part and if any in my constituency decide to apply, I would be delighted to offer them my support and practical assistance.”

To take part in the National Youth Parliament Competition 2003/4, visit  www.citizenshipfoundation.org.uk to download an application form, phone 020 7367 0523 or e-mail NYPC@citizenshipfoundation.org.uk. Applications must be sent to the Citizenship Foundation by 7 December 2003.  Video entries must be returned by 26 March 2004.  National winners will be invited to Westminster in June 2004.
