Immerse education essay competition. If you do really well, you get a scholarship for a summer school for your course.
Hiya,
Feel free to check some of these out- these tend to be annual competitions designed for students in Years 12 and 13!

You might also want to have a look and see if there are any avenues for you to write articles as opposed to essays- these would fulfil the same goal in being recognised for your hard work and ability to write about science! I hope this helps :smile:
