Julia Wood Prize Competition, 2019

This year the number of entries to the Julia Wood Prize was 221.

The intensity of the competition meant that the judges again felt compelled to divide the available funds, this time between two candidates. They are:

Isabelle Greig, in the Lower Sixth of Headington School, Oxford, for her essay entitled:

‘The Lingering Stay: How a Changing Economy and Shifting Ideas Affected British Corsetry in the Regency Era.’

Rupert Gardiner, in the Lower Sixth of the Perse School, Cambridge, for his essay entitled:

‘The Man Who Put the Jewel in the Crown: How far was Robert Clive Responsible for the East India Company’s Success on the Subcontinent?’

We hope to publish the winning essays on the College website shortly.
