Calderdale high school students were asked submit their views on society in a Courier Writing competition.
The winning entry came from a year 10 Trinity Academy Student, Jack Beevers, who wrote a letter to the editor on the issue of immigration in the UK.
The winning entrant was awarded with £100 of Woolshops, Halifax, retail vouchers.
Halifax Courier editor John Kenealy would like to thank the authors of all contributing letters.
He said: “Jack presented a clear argument; backed-up by impressive facts.
“I wish him all the best in his academic future.”
Talented young writer Jack Beevers said: “I chose to write about the benefits of immigration after having lately taken an interest in economics.”
Asked what he wants to do when he leaves full-time education, Jack said: “When I leave education, I wish to continue with the family property business.”
Trinity Academy’s senior vice principal Steve Evans said: “A letter about a topical local, national or international issue is a great way for young people to consider how they can persuade, inform and communicate their passion for a subject.”
Submitted letters by high school students were published in a letters special feature earlier this year.
