Reimagining Our Future: New Narratives by Los Angeles County High School Students

Challenge

How can we change doomsday narratives while inspiring creative thinking and imaginative solutions for our planet’s future?

Response

PAJE founder Rosalind Helfand is leading an annual science fiction writing set of programs called the Omega Sci-Fi Awards.  For Los Angeles County high school students, we present an environmental conservation themed science fiction writing prize called The Green Feather Award. Stories submitted must depict humans overcoming today’s environmental challenges. Students from high schools across the Southern California region spend months engaging in workshops and exercises to write innovative, imaginative stories exploring complex ideas.

Participants

This program is made possible by the arts and education nonprofit Light Bringer Project and Sci-Fest L.A. The Green Feather Award is presented in partnership with the Nature Nexus Institute.
