Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship

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 Archive to read the winning entries and find links to the KBOO interview with the students and a facebook livestream of the Awards Ceremony featuring student winners and keynote speaker Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner. 

 

Stay Tuned for the 2019 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship - prompt to be announced by October 2018!
