The first is from St Peter's College, Oxford (@SPC_Oxford) The aim of the prize is to provide for students in Year 12 with an opportunity to write about a philosophical issue and so, it is hoped, enable you to develop your abilities for independent research and thought.
Entrants must be in Year 12 during the academic year 2014-15. Essays must be a maximum of 2000 words in length and must be submitted in hardcopy.

Accompanying the essay entrants must submit a completed entry form, which can be downloaded here. Submissions should be sent to Alison Wiblin, Fellow’ Secretary, St Peter’s College, Oxford, OX1 2DL, to arrive by 11th September 2015.
