Reservations to attend the High School Scholarship Essay Contest Finals Dinner on Sunday, May 6 are now closed. If you’ve already made your reservations, we look forward to seeing you at the dinner. The prompt for this year’s contest is the following quotation from the Iranian women’s rights activist, Mahnaz Afkhami:

 

“The connection between women’s human rights, gender equality, socioeconomic development, and peace is increasingly apparent.”

 

At the essay contest finals dinner, the 10 student finalists will present their essay orally, and a distinguished panel of judges from the community will choose the first, second, and third place winners. A total of $15,000 in scholarships will be awarded. 

The dinner is being held in the California Banquet Room of the DoubleTree by Hilton, 2001 Point West Way, in Sacramento. Doors open for social hour at 5:00 PM, dinner begins at 6:00, and the students’ presentations begin at 7:00. The event wraps up by 9:00 PM.
