A fantastic complement to the national curriculum, the Canning House Essay Competition is targeted at Spanish and Portuguese students aged 17-19 and challenges them to apply their knowledge of language and structures to produce a sophisticated piece of persuasive writing.
Each year we challenge language students from all over the UK to submit an essay of 750-1000 words which best displays their linguistic flair and capacity for free expression in their second language(s). The topic for discussion changes from year to year.
An exciting range of prizes reward the best impressive entries, with previous winners having enjoyed cash prizes and even a fully paid for return trip to Latin America.
