Economic Futures Competition Winners 2020/21
The 2020 Economic Futures Essay Competition was open to all Scottish students registered at a Scottish University studying Economics or an economics related subject.
Students were invited to write an essay on an Economics topic related to COVID-19. The competition was fierce and we had almost 100 entries, all of a very high standard. From the essays submitted, 20 were selected for progress to round 2. Following further assessment by the panel, 10 were forwarded to our two judges Libby Brooks and Alf Young for a final round of assessment. The judges picked their top 4 and with the standard being so high, it was decided to award runner up prizes for the remaining 6 essays. Congratulations to all of our winners!
We would like to extend out thanks to everyone involved, the competition entrants, the review panel and our judges.
Listed below are our top 10 essays, we hope you enjoy reading them. The top 4 essays will be published in the September edition of the FAI Economic Commentary.
