County Prep Students in the Graphic Technology Vocation Win 3rd Place in Annual Contest

Each year, The Arc of New Jersey hosts a Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month outreach event at the State House in Trenton. On Monday, March 6 2017, County Prep students of the Graphic Technology Vocation participated in the annual contest and won 3rd place. The theme of this year’s event and design contest was “Developmental Disabilities Awareness: It Matters to Me.” Students in grades 3 - 12 were invited to design a bulletin board that incorporated the theme of this year’s campaign and illustrated the students’ acceptance of all people. The County Prep group created a bulletin board on which they decided to draw a big brain made of puzzle pieces. In each piece there is a drawing of a child doing different activities regardless of the disability. 

The students that participated in the contest visited the Statehouse in Trenton where they received their award certificate and their work was displayed. They had the opportunity to tour the Statehouse, visiting areas such as the Governor's press conference room, the Assembly Chamber and the Senate Chamber.

Congratulations to the winners: Isabelle Leverock, Sanchit Anand, Casidy Collazo, Hamza Gseir, Adrian Restrepo, Daniela Noguera, and Banni Anand.
