The Greenfield Peace 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.
Named in honor of Del Greenfield, our longtime Executive Director (pictured here), the scholarship is in its 13th consecutive year in 2021.
The theme of the scholarship in 2021 is Art & Creation: Self Expression, Activism, and Social Change. This has historically been a writing scholarship open to all Oregon 11th and 12th grade students. This year, though, Oregon PSR is asking young Oregonians who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) and who are high school juniors or seniors or the equivalent to respond to the prompt by creating a work of visual art. The scholarship’s goal is to illuminate the perspectives of Oregon's youth on issues of peace, health, justice, and safety in our world.
The submission deadline for this year's scholarship passed on March 12th. Our judges have made their selections, and we hope that you will join us for our online awards ceremony, which will premiere on our YouTube channel on Thursday, April 29th beginning at 6:30 PM.
