The Thirteen in 13 Campaign
In 2013, we are inviting all 13 year olds to write a letter to the Prime Minister to tell him what they think would make a better Britain.
Extracts from the thirteen winning letters will be published in The Times, where David Cameron has also promised to write a response to the 13 winning letters!
We have also developed a pack of curriculum-linked teaching resouces to accompany the campaign.
The pack includes a powerpoint presentation, together with a selection of notes for teachers containing further information, curriculum links and discussion topics.

Anne's memory, and for today's teens
to write about their own lives in the
same thoughtful way."
