PSR High School Scholarship Essay Contest

The Sacramento Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility congratulates the winners of our 2021 High School Scholarship Essay Contest. The contest was open to high school seniors in all California counties north of the San Francisco Bay Area. The prompt for our 2021 contest was the following excerpt from the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech given on behalf of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons 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?”

The names and high school affiliations of our 2021 winners, along with links to their essays, are posted on the home page of this website.
