Lytham St Annes Branch: Classics Competition 2021

Every year, the Lytham St Annes CA holds a Classics Competition for students in years 7-13 (aged 11-18) to produce and deliver a presentation in 15 minutes or less in response to a particular question about the ancient world. In 2021, the Competition Final will be held virtually. 

Are you in Year 7-13 and fascinated by the ancient world? Would you like to hone your public speaking and research skills and present your ideas to a friendly and supportive audience? Would you like to be in with the chance of winning up to £250? Take part in our 2021 Classics Competition! We are thrilled to announce that celebrated broadcaster, academic and author Professor Michael Scott will judge the competition.

This year we are offering you the chance to tell us: if you could travel back in time to one day in the ancient past, which would it be and why? You may travel back to one twenty-four hour period in any part of the ancient world prior to 5th September AD 476. We would love to hear your answers and look forward to watching your video entries. For more information including all the dates and guidelines you need to know – see our Guidelines page.

The deadline for entries is 11 February 2021 at 6pm.
