There were a range of topics addressed in the competition, from the Pan African Movement, established in the early days of the 20th Century, to the impact of the murder of Stephen Lawrence, which occurred in the 1990s, but the impact of which is still felt today. 

However, the two winners are Davina H M and Sirisha S. Dave wrote an incredibly well researched piece on the contribution of women of colour to breaking down misconceptions about themselves throughout the twentieth century. Sirisha's essay on Paul Stevenson went beyond the Bristol Bus Boycott and she examined his continued significance to improving race relations in the United Kingdom, also drawing on similar events occurring in the United States at the same time. 

A big congratulations to Davina and Sirisha but also to all those who took the time to educate and challenge themselves as part of this competition.
