Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, is encouraging all local A-level students to take part in the Political Studies Association (PSA)’s Schools’ Video Competition. This year’s competition asks students to explore the question: “Fake News: Is this the end of facts?”.
Stephen McPartland MP said, “I’d encourage all local A-level students to take part in this competition and submit their videos. The competition is a fantastic way for students to comment on today's political issues as well as develop new skills."
Groups of students are invited to submit short videos by the deadline of 30th October. Shortlisted groups will be invited to Speaker’s House in the Palace of Westminster to discuss the ideas raised in their video with a panel of politicians, journalists and academics.
The winners of the Schools' Short Video Competition will receive their award at the PSA’s Annual Awards Ceremony in Westminster. This year’s ceremony takes place on 5 December in London. On top of this, the winning students get a week’s work experience with the YouGov political team during their school holidays.
Full competition details for 2017 and how to enter are published on the PSA’s website at: www.psa.ac.uk
