‘Look After Your Mate’ Competition: Winners Announced!

Congratulations to our winners, Rose Walker and Lizzie Akass, whose writing on their ‘mates’ inspired us to think positively about how important friendship can be.

Both Rose and Lizzie’s pieces will be published on StudentMinds website, blog and social media sites across October, and both girls are delighted to have been selected.


“I’m really very happy to have been selected.”

Rose told us: “I’m really very happy.” The final year university student is very passionate about mental health and felt like this was her dream competition to be a part of.

Lizzie Akass, also an undergraduate student, loves writing novels and short stories. She said of the competition: “This was such a lovely surprise, it has completely made my day. I can’t thank The Student Wordsmith enough.”


“This was such a lovely surprise, it completely made my day.”


Look out for their works coming soon to websites near you this October.
