Girton runs a competition which is open to year twelve with an entry date in March. Their competition is a humanities writing prize rather than a subject-specific essay competition. Last year they were looking for writing inspired by one of six objects from their museum (their website has pictures). They accepted both essays and creative responses. This would be particularly good for anyone applying for a joint honours course who wants to show how inter-disciplinary they can be. Maximum word limit is 1,800 words, though responses (especially creative writing) can be shorter. First prize was £300.
