No. 1466: Bucking up Bucks

The State of California, according to the Times, is putting up $375,000 to promote, among other things, 'self-esteem' among its citizens. You are asked to imagine a similar scheme in a British county. An extract, please (maximum 150 words), from literature issued by the authorities explaining their programme. Entries to `Competition No. 1466' by 3 April.
