CIoT tries to engage with school kids about tax

The Chartered Institute of Taxation has
launched a
cartoon competition
for secondary school pupils aimed at trying to ‘engage
with schoolchildren about tax’.

It has asked pupils to draw a cartoon depicting a historical event that
relates to tax from anywhere in the world.

Rob Ellerby, CIoT deputy president, said ‘Finding out about an event in the
past that relates to tax means that the children will have the opportunity to
learn about history and see how taxation made an impact on the lives of people.’

The first prize is £200’s worth of book tokens as well as a cartoon drawing
of the winner with the CIOT’s tax family, the Taxables. There are also two
runner-up prizes of £50’s worth of book tokens.
