National Financial Journalist Competition

Students at Skinners' Kent Academy entered a competition run by the London Institute of Banking and Finance.  The task was to write an article in less than 1,000 words - ‘How will financial education help me to meet the financial challenges I will face throughout my life’. Shortlisted entries were judged by BBC Business Presenter Steph McGovern who had to choose one winner from each of the age groups and one for the most original idea. Rosalind Carvell, Year 11 student and Head Girl at The Skinners’ Kent Academy was the winner with the most original idea, and was presented with a certificate and £50 prize by the Managing Director of Financial Capability, Alison Pask. Rosalind is aiming for an A* grade in her GCSE Personal Finance and intends to complete the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme in the Sixth Form at the Academy. Ultimately she aims to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at university and with early achievements such as winning the National Financial Journalist Competition, she is well on her way to a successful career.
