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 for Oregon 11th and 12th grade students was:
"What would it take to eliminate nuclear weapons in your lifetime?"
Over 200 students from around the state submitted essays, narratives, and poems of under six-hundred words. Visit the page for our 2018 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship awards ceremony to read the winning entries, find additional details about our Saturday, April 28th event, and to RSVP. The awards ceremony will feature poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner as keynote speaker.
Below are a few of the resources we suggested for students responding to our scholarship question, which you may also find useful:
