In its eleventh consecutive year in 2019, 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 question for Oregon high school 11th and 12th grade students to answer this year was: "How can you work against systemic racism to help make our world more healthy and peaceful?"
Our 2019 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship Awards Ceremony was held on Friday April 26th at 6 PM at Celebration Tabernacle Church. Our keynote speaker was Dr. Brian Gibbs, Vice President for Equity and Inclusion at Oregon Health & Science University.
