Put Your Creativity to Work for the 2020 Peace Prize

Students may submit their work now for the 2020 County College of Morris Peace Prize. The winner will receive an engraved plaque and an award of $1,000, both provided by the generosity of the County College of Morris Foundation.

Established in the fall of 2001, The Peace Prize competition is intended to inspire students to use their imagination and creativity in the design and production of a work that both commemorates the events of September 11, 2001 and makes a positive statement about the importance and pursuit of world peace.

The work may take any number of forms, including, but not limited to, expository or creative writing, video production, musical composition or other visual or performing art.

Students who wish to participate should submit an application form and electronic versions of their submissions by May 10 to Laura Driver at ldriver@ccm.edu. Professor Driver will forward the submissions to a distinguished panel of judges. Announcement and award of the prize will occur in summer 2020.

In addition, the recipient will have his/her name inscribed on the permanent Peace Prize plaque in the Student Community Center so that future students will know the legacy they have inherited.

Questions may be directed to Professor Laura Driver at ldriver@ccm.edu.  To download the application, please click the button below.
