Two weeks ago my colleagues and I had the pleasure of hosting a ceremony in the University of Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre. Nearly eight hundred guests - shortlisted contestants and their families and supporters - heard a speech from our Guest of Honour, Professor Panos Kanelos; and our Director, Martin Cox, announced the category winners and runners up, and the overall winner of the Grand Prize of the John Locke Institute's 2023 Global Essay Competition. You can see their names here: https://www.johnlockeinstitute.com/prize-winners. Later this month, we will publish the prize-winning essays; I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I did.

It is my very great pleasure to congratulate you on being awarded a Merit in the Junior category of the John Locke Institute's 2023 Global Essay Competition. You can be proud of this achievement. I hope the experience of researching and writing this essay will confer on you lasting benefits.

If you continue to meet the age eligibility, I hope you will enter the competition again next year. In any case, on behalf of the John Locke Institute, I wish you well in your future intellectual and academic endeavours.

Yours sincerely,
Jamie Whyte
Chairman of Examiners

I'm not sure if this "merit" just mean commendation
Hey guys, sorry for the irrelevance to this conversation.
I'll be 14 in June 2024, so do you think I'll be allowed to join the junior category when it comes around in 2024? (I'm pretty sure I will but I just want to double check)
Also, can I submit something for the junior category next year but also for the other categories?
the answer is yes for both questions

Same I did history. Anxiously waiting rn
have you guys heard anything yet from them regarding the certificates or whatever?

I think we all should collectively start mailing or tagging them on socials to get their attention. Like damn okay its been a month since they released the results, does it take much effort to release the remaining certificates and high distinctions and all
