Fourteen High Tech Students Receive Awards at This Year’s Hudson County Alliance of Teen Artists Student Art Expo

(Bayonne, NJ–May 9, 2019) Fourteen High Tech students earned recognition this year at the the annual Hudson County Alliance of Teen Artists Student Art Expo, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.

The Top Honors Award went to Giselle Echeverria, a resident of Kearny, who will move on to the New Jersey State Festival on May 29th-31st. Echeverria also has the honor of representing High Tech at the annual travelling exhibition, ensuring visibility throughout the state.

Judges Awards went to Stella Bajor-Gil and Mari Gabrielle Feliciano of Bayonne; Hoboken residents Xavier Aniello, Casey Kauffman, and Alexandra Lee; Antoinette Critelli of Jersey City; Kearny residents London Monzon and Diana Ordonez; Danny Arroyave, Paulo Salazar, and Stephanie Schwartz of North Bergen; and Union City residents Maya Borten and Sade Rodriguez.

“This has been a truly memorable year,” declares William Kennon, veteran Studio Arts instructor. “The Student Art Expo is a wonderful opportunity to showcase outstanding artwork produced by High Tech Studio Art students. It also offers students invaluable insight into what art programs in other schools are doing.”

All participating Hudson County high school students had their work adjudicated and awards bestowed upon them during the Awards Ceremony at the Bayonne Library and Cultural Center. The Student Art Expo had been open to the public through Mother’s Day there. After that, a much more selective and streamlined show continues to run at the New Jersey City University (NJCU) Art Gallery through May 23rd, with an awards ceremony scheduled for the last day.

May marks Art Display Month in New Jersey.
