THE QUEEN'S COMMONWEALTH ESSAY COMPETITION
Since 1883, we have delivered The Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition, the world's oldest international schools' writing competition. Today, we work to expand its reach, providing life-changing opportunities for young people around the world.
We were thrilled to receive a record-breaking 26,300 entries to this year’s competition but unfortunately this has meant that judging is taking a little longer than usual!
Results and certificates will be issued at the end of October. After that time, please check your spam or junk folders as our emails can often land there. If you haven’t received your result or certificate by Friday, 11 November, please kindly send your first name and surname, submission Unique ID number and the email address with which you entered the competition to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will investigate and provide you with your certificate as soon as possible. Please rest assured that your enquiry has been received and note that, with the large number of entries this year, this process can take some time. Your patience is very much appreciated.
If your query is regarding something else, please bear with us as we work to respond as soon as possible
