Princeton University Expands Its Prize Competition for Students Who Work to Achieve Better Race Relations

This past spring, the Princeton Prize in Race Relations, sponsored by the Princeton University Alumni Association, was awarded to 29 high school students across the country who made a positive impact on race relations at their school or in the community. Competitions for the awards were held in 20 different regions across the nation. Winners received a cash prize of $1,000 and were brought to the Princeton University campus for a two-day symposium.

The Princeton Alumni Association has announced that the competition will expand to three new cities for the 2008-09 academic year. Students in Denver, Detroit, and Pittsburgh will now have the opportunity to compete for the awards.
