Local school one of 14 finalists across the UK

ST. EDWARD'S COLLEGE in Liverpool has been announced as a Schools Question Time Challenge finalist. Only 14 schools across the UK have reached the final stage and won a £500 cash grant from BT to stage a local School Question Time event. 

Pupils from the winning schools will have the opportunity to become part of the production team producing a real BBC Question Time program for broadcast on BBC ONE in summer 2004. 

The Challenge, which launched last November, invited schools to apply for a free education pack produced by BT in association with the Institute for Citizenship. Schools used the pack to help in the teaching of Citizenship for secondary school pupils and as a guide to create their own proposal for a Schools Question Time event. 

St. Edward's College's proposal stood out from the crowd as the school will be approaching a high-profile panel for the event including the local playwright Willy Russell and Mike Storey, Leader of the City Council. 

The event will provide an opportunity to discuss matters of local, national and international concern and allow pupils to be fully engaged in current affairs and topical issues. Debating such issues in a public setting will help pupils to understand the importance of developing arguments intelligibly and listening to the opinions of others. 

Each of the 14 finalists announced today will now go on to make their proposed plans a reality with the help of a £500 BT grant. They will also receive professional support in staging their event from taking part in a Schools Question Time workshop on the 4 February, as well as receiving advice from members of the BBC editorial team. 

The special edition programme will be broadcast in the regular time slot on BBC ONE in July 2004.
