We hope that you will join us in celebrating the Oregon high school student winners of our 2017 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship.
Portland’s First Unitarian Church Eliot Center (1226 SW SalmonStreet)
Now in its ninth consecutive year, the scholarship is an opportunity to hear from young Oregonians on some of the most pressing issues of our time.
This year, we asked students to respond to the following question:
“How would you solve the public health crisis of gun violence?”
We received more than 150 entries, including essays, poems and narrative works, from communities throughout the state. We greatly appreciate all of the students who took the time to share their ideas with us.
