Make your Mark ballot asks young people about their priorities for the UK Youth Parliament
The Make Your Mark ballot for the UK Youth Parliament’s annual debate has been launched today, 22 August 2018.
Make Your Mark is the largest consultation of young people in Europe. It gives young people aged 11-18 across the UK the chance to get involved and have their voices heard by helping to decide what Members of the UK Youth Parliament should debate and vote on to be their campaign for in 2019.
Members of Youth Parliament aged 11-18 take part in an annual debate in the House of Commons chamber, chaired by the Speaker of the House of Commons. They debate five issues chosen by the Make Your Mark ballot of young people from across the UK, and then vote to decide which two issues should become the UK Youth Parliament’s priority campaigns for the year ahead.
Ballot papers for Make Your Mark are issued through schools, colleges, youth groups, along with partner organisations.
