About the Trust for Sustainable Living Essay Competition:

This year’s theme 
“How can young people be better supported to thrive in green jobs?”

The Trust for Sustainable Living is pleased to invite schoolchildren around the world to share their ideas to help protect the Earth’s precious biological diversity.

Following on from the success of the first online International Schools’ Debates and Summit, next year’s Debates will also take place online to help support the broadest possible participation of schoolchildren from around the world.

The competition is aimed at primary and secondary school students, supported by Teacher Champions, parents and schools. To participate, schools simply need to register a Teacher Champion to coordinate on their behalf.


Eligibility Trust for Sustainable Living Essay Competition

TSL is pleased to invite children around the world to share their ideas on how partnerships can help to achieve the SDG’s and build a more sustainable world.
  • The International Student Essay Competition is open to all students worldwide.
  • Must be aged 7-18 across two age categories – 7-11 years and 12-18 years.
Students are free to approach the topic however they wish.

For example, they might decide to:

  • consider one or many of the SDG’s,
  • concentrate on already existing or possible future initiatives, or
  • focus on local, national or international level partnerships.
However they decide to approach their essays, children are strongly encouraged to include their own personal views, perspectives and experiences to help bring their visions alive.

Selection Criteria Trust for Sustainable Living Essay Competition:

  • The essays are judged for originality and creativity in all formats, and the potential to contribute to a constructive international debate.
  • Unique and well-argued perspectives score highly. Please refrain from copying and pasting non-original material.
Number of Awardees: 5 finalists, 1 winner and lots of consolation prizes.

Value of Trust for Sustainable Living Essay Competition:

  • One overall Grand Prize trophy winner will receive a free international trip to a TSL Summit, including £500 spending money.
  • The Top 10 essay medallists will receive eco-friendly e-medals with redeemable gift tokens included.
  • All participating Teacher Champions, Essay Finalists & Honourable Mentions, and International Debate participants, will receive personalised e-certificates

Judging Criteria Trust for Sustainable Living Essay Competition

  • The judges look for originality and creativity, woven around a fact-based narrative in all formats – and the potential to contribute to constructive national or international debate. Unique and well-argued perspectives score highly.
  • All work should be original and the students own. A bibliography of references should be included where appropriate and will not be counted as part of the official word limit. Essays or videos with plagiarised content will not be considered for an award. Especially within the essay competition, the same snippets of text tend to reappear again and again from common sources such as Wikipedia, and thus become very obvious to essay readers!
  • Each student’s age is taken into account when judging, so that younger students are not at an unfair disadvantage when compared with older students.
  • They understand that for some students English may be a second language and therefore do not mark down for syntax.
