April 27, 2014 Scholarship Essay Contest Finals Dinner

We would like to invite you to the tenth annual PSR/Sacramento Scholarship Essay Contest finals dinner on the evening of Sunday, April 27. The prompt for this year’s contest is a quotation from the late South African leader and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Nelson Mandela, who said, "Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world.”

We received a record 185 essays from high school seniors this year! At the essay contest finals, the ten student finalists will present their essays orally and a distinguished panel of judges will choose the first, second, and third place winners.
A total of $15,000 in scholarships will be awarded.

The Finals Dinner will be at the Dante Club, 2330 Fair Oaks Boulevard, in Sacramento. Doors will open at 5:30 pm, dinner will be served at 6:00 pm, and the presentations of the finalists will begin at 7:00 pm. The cost of the dinner is $35 per person ($20 for students). The Dante Club is known for its delicious and abundant food, and the dinner, which will be served family style, will include vegetarian selections.

We hope that you will join us for a stimulating evening in the good company of other PSR supporters.  Please make your reservation online with your credit card or check.  The deadline for making reservations is Monday, April 21.   

With this year’s contest, we will have given out $105,000 in scholarship awards over the past 10 years. It has been through the generosity of supporters like you that we’re able to offer the scholarship essay contest every year. We hope you will join us at the dinner but even if you can’t, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the scholarship fund. We run the contest entirely with volunteer help and 100% of your contribution goes directly to the students.  

Thank you for your support!
