Sunday, May 1, at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 2001 Point West Way, in Sacramento
The prompt for this year's contest is a quotation from the Dalai Lama, who said, "Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free." More than 130 students entered this year's contest. We're currently in the process of choosing the 10 finalists who will present their essays orally at the finals dinner on Sunday, May 1, at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 2001 Point West Way, in Sacramento. A distinguished panel of judges from the community will choose the first, second, and third place winners, and $15,000 in scholarships will be awarded. If you've already made your reservations, we look forward to seeing you at the dinner.
More information concerning the scholarship essay contest can be found on the Essay Contest page of this website. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, including this year's awards, PSR/Sacramento will have given out over $135,000 in scholarships over the past 12 years. You can make a tax deductible donation to the scholarship fund via the Join/Donate/Scholarship Dinner Reservation page of this website.
