Prem Rawat’s “Words of Peace” TV Series Honored by US Community Access Station
Washington, DC, August 7, 2007 — The television series “Words of Peace” won first place honors in the 2007 Community Access Magic (CAM) Awards sponsored by CTV in Prince George’s County, Maryland, a community near Washington, DC. The series features talks by Prem Rawat, known worldwide as Maharaji, a leading voice for peace who shares his message with audiences around the globe. The award was announced by Sandra F. Peaches, Esq., the interim executive director of CTV, which is one of the most widely recognized community access organizations in the United States. A number of distinguished public officials attended the award ceremony, which was held July 31, 2007 at the elegant Newton White Mansion, managed by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George’s County. The awards were distributed by Gina Jordan, Programming/Training Coordinator of CTV.
A CTV awards committee selected “Words of Peace” as the winning program in the “Interview/Talk” category. The prize was awarded to Prince George’s County resident Jimi Jones, a city planner who has been volunteering the past year as local producer of the show. “I’ve been listening to Prem Rawat's message for many years,” Jones explained. “It helps me enjoy life at a deeper level, and I wanted to share it with others in my community. I hope this program can touch other CTV viewers and maybe get more people to recognize that peace is possible.”
Jackie Reece, a representative of The Prem Rawat Foundation, which advances Prem Rawat’s message of peace and spearheads significant humanitarian initiatives, accepted the award on Jones’ behalf. “I thank Community Television of Prince George’s County for recognizing this show, ‘Words of Peace,’” she said. “This show contains a message that is simple, yet profound: that peace is possible and begins within each of us. It is gratifying to see that you and Jimi have taken this message to heart.”
