  • Protecting the environment and reducing man-made contributions to global warming.
  • Promoting social justice, both locally and globally.

PSR/Sacramento is pleased to announce that our 2021 High School Scholarship Essay Contest is now open for submissions from high school seniors in Sacramento and surrounding counties

 

The prompt for our 2021 contest is the following excerpt from the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech given on behalf of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) by Executive Director Beatrice Fihn on December 10, 2017:

 

“The story of nuclear weapons will have an ending, and it is up to us what the ending will be. Will it be the end of nuclear weapons, or will it be the end of us?”
