Bank of England and Financial Times Schools Blog Competition: Get writing!

The Bank and the FT are joining forces to launch a schools blogging competition.  We’re looking for the best blog written by a school student on the theme of  “The Future Economy”, with the winning blog(s) appearing on both the FT online and Bank Underground. Posts should be no more than 500 words, and can include up to two charts or infographics.  There’s more information about rules, judging criteria and how to submit here.  The closing date for entries is Sunday 15 April 2018 .

Our first ever guest post was written by A-level economics students, and we know that many school students are also keen readers of the blog. You are the policymakers, business owners, and investors of tomorrow and we want to hear your thoughts about what the future economy will look like. If you are a school student and fancy the chance of seeing your economic analysis appearing on Bank Underground, please get writing.  I look forward to reading your entries!
