85th Annual Rose Rees Peace Awards – A Virtual Celebration!

11:30 am — 12:30 pm

ZOOM - Check back here for invitation and information!

We’ve been doing some thinking at NCJW Minnesota…just because we can’t be together in person for an awards luncheon, doesn’t mean that the world shouldn’t hear from brilliant and inspiring voices. We’ve decided to have a virtual celebration on our original date (April 22nd) at our original time (11:30 am). While we know that it won’t replace an in-person gathering, these students deserve to be honored, and we will do our best to do just that.

The Rose Rees Peace Awards honor exceptional high school seniors from local schools who have demonstrated a special interest in and commitment to international relations and world peace. The award commemorates Rose Rees, a past president of NCJW-Greater Minneapolis Section. Rees’ passion for world peace was a guiding principle of NCJW, as well as at the World Affairs Council of Minneapolis, which she founded. Each year, NCJW honors selected seniors from participating schools (as well as their family members, teachers and principals) in her honor.
