The Julia Wood Prize 2014 - Winners

Congratulations to our Julia Wood Prize 2014 winners.

This year there were 105 entries to the Julia Wood Essay Prize Competition, a drop from last year, but with quality undimmed at the higher end.
Unusually, the Prize was awarded to a candidate in the Lower Sixth: Cecilia Murray-Brown, of St Mary's School, Ascot, for her essay on the way in which the British monarchy bucked the European trend in the twentieth century. Her essay is entitled ‘How has the British Monarchy survived "one of the most spectacular political landslides in history"?’

The Committee awarded two further prizes to Lily Spicer, of Oundle School, for her essay on Prince Albert and the Great Exhibition, and to Joshua Stickland, of King's College, Taunton, for his essay on the fall of the Romanov dynasty.

All three essays will be published on the College’s website.
