What happens next?

Tutor2u arranges a panel of over 20 Economics teacher judges from across the UK, who meet over two days to read through all of the entries and put together a shortlist of essays for final judging and also a list of highly commended entries from the 2016 competition which they pass to the Royal Economic Society to make their final decision.

For the final shortlist of winners, the RES judges are Sir Charles Bean (former RES President , former deputy governor of the Bank of England), Stephanie Flanders ( award winning BBC journalist and Economics Editor, now J.P. Morgan Asset Management's chief market strategist for the UK and Europe) and Professor Jonathan Haskel (Imperial College and former elected member of RES Council).

The winner of the Young Economist of the Year receives an award and wins £1,000, with runners-up each receiving £500. All those on the final shortlist or highly commended lists will receive a certificate from Tutor2U.

The RES thanks all students and schools who have taken part in this popular competition. Due to the large number of entries we regret that no feedback can be provided for individual essays.
