Northern Ireland Young Life and Times Survey 2007

2007 YLT Essay writing competition

In 2007 Young Life and Times invited all eligible survey respondents as well as all 16-year old pupils attending post-primary schools in Northern Ireland to take part in an essay writing competition. Budding authors were asked to write about -

'The Lives and Times of Young People in Northern Ireland today'

We were very pleased to receive 28 essays, all of which were very interesting and of a high quality. We selected the following winner and runner up:

  • 1st prize (300): Shaun Mulvenna
  • 2nd prize (200): Gavin Carmichael

The winning essay is also being published as a book chapter in a forthcoming edited volume focusing on Young Life and Times survey data.

Some essay authors gave us kindly their permission to publish their essays online. Some chose to be identified by their first names only. Click on the titles below to view the essays:
