In its tenth consecutive year in 2018, the Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship is an opportunity to hear from young Oregonians on some of the most pressing issues of our time. We sponsor this annual writing scholarship in order to encourage Oregon’s youth to consider their leadership role in promoting a more healthy, just, and peaceful world.
The 2018 question is:
"What would it take to eliminate nuclear weapons in your lifetime?"
Submissions must be essays, narratives, or poems of 600 words or fewer.
Oregon 11th and 12th grade students are eligible to apply.
1st Place: $1,000
2nd Place: $750
3rd Place: $500
Entries must be received by March 5th, 2018.
While online entry is preferred, you can also print this form and mail in a paper copy.
Awards will be presented April 28th, 2018, in Portland. The awards ceremony will feature poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner as keynote speaker.
