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.

The theme of this year’s award is 85 Years of Activism: Youth Leading Change and will be moderated by Asma Mohammed Nizami, Advocacy Director at Reviving the Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment
