Fall Benefit Concert
Our fall benefit concert is entitled "In Praise of Peace" and seeks to raise awareness of peace efforts. We have featured Montana Logging & Ballet, Bill Bowers, Rob Quist and Jack Gladstone, Ronnie Bedford, Roger Kellaway, David Friesen, The Midlife Chryslers, The Drum Brothers, Big Sky Chorus, "Middle Grounds" representing Iran, Israel, Syria, Iraq, and Palestine, and Janie Rife Sutton. In 2015, we featured the full RMC Concert Band.
The Edith Gronhovd Peace Essay Awards were presented in the Fraley Lounge of the Bair Family Student Center on the campus of Rocky Mountain College during our benefit concert. Cash awards are presented to high school and college students who have submitted essays on specific topics. Judged by an independent panel of judges, these essays have proven to be outstanding in every way. Please call the Institute for Peace Studies at 406.657.1042 for more information or for a current brochure.
All previous winners of the prestigious Jennette Rankin Peace Award were recognized and honored that evening, Friday, November 20th. The 2016 Fall Benefit date TBA.
