Our sincere thanks to all Oregon 11th or 12th grade high school students who entered Oregon PSR's 2012 Greenfield Peace Writing Contest. The deadline for submissions has passed, and we have passed all entries along to our panel of judges. Any 11th or 12th grade student in Oregon may have entered by submitting an original piece of fiction, poem, or essay (maximum 600 words) reflecting on the following question:
In 1953, U. S. President and World War II Supreme Allied Commander Dwight Eisenhower said, “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” How is this statement relevant today?
Our panel of judges this year include:
Israel Bayer, Executive Director of Street Roots newspaper
Ellen Hart, Literature and Writing Professor at PSU and PCC
Angel Hines, Writer and Member of Veterans for Peace, Chapter 72
Erica Maranowski, Winner of Oregon PSR's 2011 Greenfield Peace Writing Contest
S. Renee Mitchell, Award-winning Former Journalists and Creative Visionary
Frances Storrs, MD, Oregon PSR Advisor Board Member
