Politics Essay competitions

Hi! I really want to start doing essay competitions, partially for fun but also to help boost my university applications.

Does anyone have any ideas? I want to take Human, social and political sciences at Cambridge or Politics and International relations at LSE.
Hi! I've applied for HSPS and IR at LSE too! I would recommend looking at essay competitions on different Cambridge college websites as they run quite a few. Good luck!
