PSR/Sacramento Congratulates the Winners of our
2022 High School Scholarship Essay Contest



The prompt for this year’s contest, chosen by a vote of our members, was a statement written by the late American journalist, William Greider, in his 1992 book, Who Will Tell the People: The Betrayal of American Democracy:

“Americans cannot teach democracy to the world until they restore their own.”
