At the Department of Theology & Religion at the University of Exeter, we want to hear your ideas about religion!
We’re inviting GCSE, A-Level and IB students in any subject to send us 1,000 words on one of the following big questions:
- Would the world be better off without religion? Answer with reference to world events 2020-2021 (Black Lives Matter; Pandemic; Economic Crash; Free School Dinners/Foodbanks; American Elections; Climate Change)
- Should everyone have to study religion at school? Answer with reference to world events 2020-2021 (Black Lives Matter; Pandemic; Economic Crash; Free School Dinners/Foodbanks; American Elections; Climate Change)
- What role should religion play in a post-Covid world?
There will be three prizes. One for the best standard essay (1000 words), one for the best creative writing piece (1000 words), and one for the best video entry (6-7 minutes).
The deadline is 18th April 2021.
Lecturers from the Department of Theology and Religion will be judging your entries.
The best entry for each category will receive £100 in vouchers.
