Alert body: 

For the first time in OFIR's 11 year history, two scholarships for the most outstanding essays regarding illegal immigration will be awarded to college bound seniors and undergraduate students enrolled in college.  Scholarship awards of $1,000 for a first place winner and $750 for a 2nd place winner will be awarded Saturday, May 12, 2012 in Salem.  

OFIR's goal in offering these scholarships is to get young people to seriously examine the consequences of unfettered illegal immigration and excessive legal immigration and how that might impact their future. If you know of an Oregon resident student that is a US citizen, please let them know about this opportunity.
