The Visual and Performing Art Academy at Red Bank Regional High School once again turned in an impressive result in the National Scholastic competition, which is sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers as the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens.
This year’s competition included over 255,000 submissions in 28 categories, by students from the United States, Canada, U.S. territories, and U.S. schools abroad, including North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. RBR won 97 awards at the June 6 event in New York City, including 18 Gold Keys. Gold Keys represent the highest level of achievement on a regional level (approximately 7-10 per cent of regional submissions).
