SHADOW HELEN 2014
15th October, 2014.
Open for Applications!
I am delighted to announce that the Shadow Helen Competition 2014 is now open. Young people from Maidstone & the Weald will have the chance to 'Shadow' me through the remainder of this Parliamentary Term and into the General Election on May 7th 2015.
The competition winners will gain valuable work experience inside Parliament and have the chance to watch debates in the House of Commons, attend committee meetings and network with a wide variety of politicians and officials. They will also follow me throughout the General Election, seeing first-hand the excitement and complexity of a national campaign.
I am also thrilled that this year we will be offering all finalists a day of work experience in Westminster.
If you are aged between 16-18 in November of this year then please do fill out an application form, available to download below together with some guidance notes.
Please note the closing date for applications is Sunday 30th November 2014. (n.b. This has been extended from the original closing date to allow for the fact that several schools were closed for half term when the competition was launched).
Best of luck!
