StoveTeam Founder Featured Speaker at Nobel Peace Laureate Project

The Nobel Peace Laureate Project is a grassroots nonprofit organization in Eugene, Oregon created to promote peace by honoring and inspiring peacemakers. The group is composed of educators, political activists, and concerned citizens who want to work for world peace.

The organization has built a Peace Park in Eugene's Alton Baker Park. The park has a kiosk and pillars with information on the Nobel Peace Laureates. In addition there is a central alcove that provides an area where the class can put on presentations about the Nobel Peace Prize winners and listen to lectures or watch skits about the Laureates. 

This is the first ever monument honoring as a group the achievements of our own internationally recognized Nobel Peace Laureates. All Peace Laureates deserve great prominence in their own country. Developing this monument for our 24 American winners is powerful representation of what peacemakers can accomplish.

On May 17th, the Nobel Peace Laureate Project invites you to attend their Annual Dinner Gala and “Peace Educator of the Year” awards presentation. The event will take place at the Ford Alumni Center at University of Oregon. From 5:30-6:30 there will be a reception, with dinner and the presentations beginning at 6:30 p.m. 

StoveTeam's President and Founder Nancy Hughes will be the featured speaker. In 2009 Nancy was awarded Rotary International's Service Above Self Award, one of only 122 given worldwide. In 2013, she was honored by the White House as a Champion of Change and honored as a CNN Hero.

The presentation of the Peace Educator of the Year award will honor two of the communities leaders in education:

Rena Dunbar, Spencer Butte Middle School

Marty Smith, Roosevelt Middle School
