Pupils were asked to discuss the statement by C.S. Lewis about Christ: a madman, a liar or was He indeed the true God who came to be among us?
The overall winner was Samuel McCarthy of Bishop Vaughan School, Swansea, and prizes were also awarded to pupils at:
St John Houghton School, Kirk Hallam
Gumley House School Isleworth
Finchley Catholic High School
St Martin’s Catholic Academy Nuneaton
St Thomas Aquinas School Birmingham
It was a particular pleasure to be able to award the magnificent book on Catholicism produced by Lord Brennan: this means that our young writers this year have a truly memorable award. We are also grateful to the Knights of St Columba who helped by spreading word of the Award through their own Youth and Schools initiative.”
