    History Competition - 1918 Representation of the People Act

    The History Department are running a competition to commemorate the passing of this act.

     

     

    In 1918, the Representation of the People Act was passed, which meant that women in the UK (over the age of 30) were allowed the vote for the first time.

     

    The History Department are running a competition for all students in Years 7, 8 and 9 to create something (e.g. essay or poster) to commemorate the passing of this act. The deadline is 8 March (International Women's Day) and there will be a prize for each year group.

    There has been a lot of information in the news about this and you can read more on BBC Newsround - http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/42794339
