STUDENTS from Shoreham, Southwick and Lancing are being encouraged to join a debate on Europe.
The Political Studies Association (PSA) holds an annual short film competition, as part of a programme of activities to engage young people in the study of politics.
East Worthing and Shoreham MP Tim Loughton hopes A-level students in his constituency will contribute to this years competition, on the theme ‘Europe – In or Out?’.
He said: “Our young people have never had their say on Europe. Should we stay in or should we leave?
“I’m a huge advocate of young people getting stuck in and having their say. This competition gives students the opportunity to do both.
“I’m encouraging all local A-Level students to take part and submit their ideas and videos.”
Shortlisted groups will be invited to Westminster to discuss the ideas raised in their video with a panel of politicians, journalists and academics.
The winners will receive their award in London on November 25 and be invited to spend a week volunteering with the YouGov political team.
