The Ohio Environment Council launches the second Ohio Public Interest Environmental Justice Writing Competition to highlight the high-quality academic work of individuals soon to enter the legal or policy world and catalyze conversation about issues facing Ohio’s environment.

The OEC will select articles exploring issues of environmental justice from up to five applicants to be featured on the OEC’s website. The students will also have the opportunity to share their work with attendees to the 2020 Ohio Public Interest Environmental Law Conference. The selected applicants will also be eligible to receive a scholarship: one finalist will receive a scholarship of $750, a runner-up will receive $250, and three finalists will receive honorary mention.

Only students presently enrolled in an accredited law school, graduate program, or undergraduate institution may submit a paper for this competition.
