Young people can set out the future of the UK's economy in a competition launched this week.
The economic challenges facing the UK are the focus of Chance to be Chancellor, which is run by the Citizenship Foundation's Paying for It programme with insurance company Aviva.
It encompasses activities centred on last month's pre-Budget report, aimed at young people aged 14-19, as well as a competition which involves taking on the role of the chancellor and delivering a vision for the economy.
Chancellor Alistair Darling said the competition was a "great chance to understand the challenges we face and consider the big choices that we have to make for the country".
The winning entry will be published in the Times on this year's Budget Day.
