Archie Deme | Winner of CIH futures housing challenge 2020
The CIH Futures Essay Competition is an exceptional and unique platform for young people interested in the housing sector to discuss important and relevant issues. Reflecting on the experience, the internship has been thoroughly challenging, enjoyable and educational and has enabled me to develop and improve hugely.
All entrants must include the following in their submission email:
Full name, age and if you are a university student – what university do you attend and what course you are studying, or if you're not a student, what your work status is.
You don’t need any qualifications or to be an expert in housing to apply, but enthusiasm and curiosity is key.
Essays will be judged anonymously by a diverse panel who will select the ten finalists. We are looking for essays that show creativity, originality and different insights into the topic selected.
