During the regional round of adjudication, the judges reviewed over 4000 works of art submitted by over 1200 students from northern New Jersey. The selection process is extremely competitive allowing only 6% of regional submissions to move onto the national level, Gold Key Award. Only 20-25% of students garnered awards at the Silver Key Award and Honorable Mention.
This year my students received 18 individual Awards. The 3 Gold Key winners will have their artwork on display at the Montclair Art Museum and their artwork will move to the national level for judging.
