For the 2018 Competition, The Royal Commonwealth Society and The Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition have been working to develop new, exciting partnerships with organisations across the Commonwealth to promote the Competition to a wider range of young people. The Society is proud to be working with the organisations below to promote literacy and to increase access to this unique and highly regarded programme for all young people of the Commonwealth. 

If you are interested in discussing how we can work together, we would be delighted to hear from you. Contact our team, for ways in which you can support the charitable work of the Society and the Competition.
