The Royal Economic Society recently held its annual Young Economist of the Year Essay Competition in association with the Financial Times. The RES invited year 12 and year 13 A-Level students to submit an essay of up to 1,500 words on one of five topics ranging from HS2 to climate change. The winner, with the best overall essay, will win £1,000 and have their essay published in the Financial Times. There will also be five prizes of £200 awarded for the best essays in each topic.

The Royal Economic Society's Young Economist of the Year Essay Competition is now closed for 2020. We would like to thank everyone who participated as we received thousands of excellent submissions. Our judges are currently marking the essays and we will be announcing the winners on our website during early October. You can read more about the competition here.
