Love To Learn 150 Years

Closing Date: :

Tell us what you think life will be like for school children in 150 years’ time and you could win a £150 Amazon voucher.

In September 1870 the Belfast Telegraph published its first newspaper.  1870 was right in the middle of Queen Victoria’s reign and as you have discovered things in Belfast and all big cities were very different then.

The company who produce the Belfast Telegraph thought it would be a good time to start a newspaper as more people were able to read.  In 1870 the Belfast Telegraph cost a half penny.

To enter tell us in 150 words what you think Northern Ireland will be like in 150 years’ time, in the year 2170.

Here are a few things you could think about and how they might change:

  • School
  • Holidays
  • Entertainment
  • Health
  • Poverty
  • News
