Future Influencers competition

Win a Journalism Workshop in English for the whole class!

When asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, how many of your students say “An influencer!”?

We want to create influencers whose reach goes way beyond social media and future-proof teenagers with the global skills they need to have a real, positive impact on society. For that reason we have created the Future Influencers competition.


“What do you think needs influencing to improve your local community?”
As a class, decide your answer to the following question and write a news article explaining how you want to have an influence on this issue (maximum 300 words)

Why not try Influence’s Skills Boost methodology to help your class plan their news article?


17 February – competition opens

14 April – closing date for submissions

21 April – winning class announced

21 May – Journalism Workshop for the winning class*
*Participants must have availability to receive the Journalism Workshop in their school from 09.00 – 15.00 on Thursday 14 May 2020.
