Fancy A Chance To Be The Chancellor?
Henry Smith is supporting the launch of Chance to be Chancellor 2012 and is calling on schools and young people in Crawley to take up in the challenge to learn about, and share their opinions on Budget 2012.
Run by the Citizenship Foundation, in partnership with Aviva, Chance to be Chancellor is open to all 14-18 year olds across the UK. Running until the 20th February, participants can enter into a national competition to win great prizes and a visit to HM Treasury in London.
“This is an excellent chance for young people in Crawley who are interested in politics to learn about, and express their opinion on the important economic decisions of the country.
“Chance to be Chancellor is an online tool that gives 14-18 year olds the chance to make informed decisions on real taxation and spending policies. Last year over 3000 young people took part in the scheme that culminated in the publication of the first ever “youth budget”. I hope you this year that Crawley youngsters and schools will represent our town and take advantage of this excellent opportunity.”
