The Matters of Life & Death Scholarship Writing Contest is accepting applications from high school juniors and seniors in California. The Contest, designed to help students develop awareness of the issues surrounding aid in dying, asks students to write an essay on:

Why should a mentally competent, terminally ill adult family member have the right to choose aid in dying? What would you say to another family member who disagrees?

Students have the opportunity to win up to $1,000 for college. Contest rules and more information can be found at: https://www.compassionandchoices.org/what-you-can-do/in-your-state/california/essay-contest/

The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2014.
