PSR/Sacramento congratulates the winner of our 2020 High School Scholarship Essay Contest, which was open to all high school seniors in Sacramento and surrounding counties. A total of $15,500 was awarded. The prompt for this year’s contest was the following statement by the Guatemalan civil rights activist and 1992 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Rigoberta Menchu Tum:
“Peace is not only the absence of war. As long as there is poverty, racism, discrimination and exclusion, we’ll be hard-pressed to achieve a world of peace.”
