Thank you for all the student essays
Thanks to everyone that entered our student competitions. The deadline has now passed, so pens down and please stop writing. Your can keep improving your articles if you want, but the judges will only assess the version that existed at the time the competition closed.
We will spend Christmas narrowing down the entries to a short-list of five for each competition. Buro Happold and Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners will then choose one winner from each short-list. Five runners-up from each competition will receive commendations and will be featured on the home page, and all suitable entries will be added to the site.
The winners will be announced in January. Good luck everyone.
By the way – if you haven’t created your ‘page about me’ you need to do it now. Include your name, email address and university course - otherwise we won’t know who you are.
Now you’ve got the hang of it, why not write some more articles? We always welcome new articles on the site - that’s what it’s for. Just click here, and off you go.
