5 Mar
2013-pwc-logo-very-small
With leaks of radioactive materials at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in the news recently, Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) is extending the submission deadline for our Hanford-themed 2013 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship to Wednesday, March 20th. Any 11th or 12th grade high school student in Oregon may enter by submitting an original essay, poem, or narrative work reflecting on the following question:

“The Hanford Nuclear Reservation, on the Columbia River, was a major nuclear weapons production facility. It is where the plutonium was developed for the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, and it is now considered the most toxic site in the Western Hemisphere. Why does Hanford matter?”

Follow these links for the entry formsuggested curriculum and resources, and all peace writing scholarship details. Submissions may be sent by email (preferred) or postal mail, and we recently extended the submission deadline to Wednesday, March 20th, 2013. A panel of judges comprised of noted authors and distinguished community members will select the three winning entries. The first prize winner will receive a scholarship award of $1,000, the second $750 and the third $500. 

Oregon PSR will host an awards ceremony on Friday, May 3rd at the Ecotrust Building in Portland at which the three winners will be honored. The awards will be given as part of the Opening Reception for the Particles on the Wall art and literature exhibit, which deals with the historic consequences of Hanford and the nuclear age.
