Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition for Students Worldwide 2024

The upcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in October 2024 will be held in Samoa with the theme ‘One Resilient Common Future: Transforming our Common Wealth’. This theme is particularly relevant as many Commonwealth countries, including Samoa, face challenges such as climate change impacts and economic growth issues. Building resilient societies has become crucial in addressing these pressing issues affecting communities across the Commonwealth.


The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2024 encourages entrants to explore the concepts of resilience, community, and culture in the face of adversity. Participants are prompted to reflect on how small steps can make a significant impact on tackling the climate crisis and how Commonwealth values can be leveraged to address global challenges. The competition offers top prizes, including a trip to London for winners, as well as certificates and awards for outstanding entries.


The requirements for the competition vary by age group, with topics ranging from addressing climate change to promoting cooperation and community through cultural values. Whether participants are considering new habits to support a greener Commonwealth or engaging in creative dialogues with sea creatures during a beach clean-up, the competition aims to spark critical thinking and reflections on creating a more resilient and interconnected Commonwealth. The application deadline for this enriching opportunity is on May 15, 2024.
