This scholarship contest is for college-bound high school juniors and seniors in California. The contest's goals are to expose students to the issues surrounding aid-in-dying and to financially assist college-bound scholars. To apply for this scholarship contest, applicants must submit an essay on the topic, "Why should I have an advance directive by the time I turn 18?" (An advance directive lets you communicate, either through a document or a designated person, what health care you do and do not want to receive; it is used in situations where patients are mentally or physically unable to speak for themselves.) Essays will be judged on quality and clarity of presentation, correct use of terminology, familiarity with the issues, original application of research, and potential shown by the author.
