Make Your Mark was launched on the 12th August and is running till 9th October, young people across the country are being asked what issues matter most to them, in order to determine what is debated by the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) in the House of Commons on 13th November. The top five issues will be debated by Youth MPS who will then vote for two of them to become the national campaigns of 2016.
Young People aged 11-18 are being asked to vote once on the following issues
Extended Special Educational Needs support. There should be more, not less, help for young people with special educational needs, including those with learning difficulties and dyslexia.
Voting is taking place online and through ballot papers in schools/Youth Groups across the country. There are a range of methods that schools can use to take part in this piece of work such as traditional voting on ballot papers, tally sheets either in registration, break times, and lunch times. UKYP have already produced a range of lesson plans that could be used in association with the Make Your Mark Ballot.
