08 Jun Sociology National Competition winner!
A Level Sociology
Amanda Daud who studies A Level Sociology here at Jo Richardson Community School has won the prestigious National British Sociological Association Award (BSA). The competition is open to A Level students across the entire country who are tasked with writing a 2000 word essay entitled ‘What can Sociology contribute to the debate about Fake News’. Amanda was presented with her prize – an IPAD mini and a £250 cheque for Jo Richardson School by representatives from the BSA, including the judge, Aaron Winter from UEL on Thursday 24th May.
Amanda has received an offer from Cambridge University to study Human, Social and Political Sciences and is hoping to secure her place there and begin her studies in October. Amanda stated that ‘I have a keen interest in writing essays and expanding my knowledge of various topics and so the opportunity to research fake news in greater depth in relation to sociology propelled me to enter the competition. Winning the competition has fuelled my excitement to conduct wider reading at Cambridge University when undertaking my degree’.
At Jo Richardson we are extremely proud of Amanda. She is a hardworking, dedicated and passionate student of Sociology and to win such a prestigious award is a magnificent achievement.
