RSN’s 21st Annual Essay Contest
Submissions are Open Until August 10, 2023.
We are pleased to announce the theme of our 21st Annual Essay Contest. This year, it’s all about creativity, and writers are asked to address the following question: “How do you use your creativity to help cope with kidney disease?” The annual contest provides an opportunity for those who live with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to tell their story.
Lori Hartwell, founder and president of RSN, says, “Managing all the emotions that accompany kidney disease is daunting. Learning how to cope with its challenges is key to thriving despite this illness. We want to share kidney warrior strategies so that others may benefit from them. We look forward to reading all of the courageous stories.”
Contest winners will receive cash prizes: First Place, $500; Second Place, $300; and Third Place, $100. The submission deadline is August 10, 2023.
