LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Key Club excelled at the State Convention with the club and many members receiving awards. More than 600 students from different high schools in New Jersey convened at the NJ Key Club District Convention to learn about the club, vote for the New Jersey Board and commit to servant leadership.
The Key Club at Livingston High School (LHS) has more than 200 members and participates in many community events, such as: the LACD sports clinics, Kiwanis Karnival and the Intergenerational Prom. The Key Club is a youth service-leadership organization. It is the oldest and largest service program for high school students and is entirely student-led. According the LHS website, “Key Clubbers are caring and competent servant leaders transforming communities worldwide.” The club's core values include caring, character building, inclusiveness, and leadership. The advisers are Giovanna Riggi and Michael Ladolcetta.

LHS Senior Emily Nevola won first place in the impromptu essay contest. The task was to write an essay describing how one’s journey of key club has brought them to their destination of service. In addition to this award, she was also awarded a scholarship. 

Livingston won third place in the scrapbook contest. For this contest, clubs submitted a scrapbook highlighting the service events of the year and were judged by a panel. 

In addition, the following three members performed in the talent show: Zoe Schwartz, Gianna Scheskowsky and duet Lauren DiFalco and Nevola. Scheskowsky won fourth place and performed for the entire assembly.
And, all five members of the board received distinguished officer awards: President Lindsey Wu, Vice President Hinal Patel, Treasurer Nidhi Shah, Secretary Emily Nevola, Editor Lauren DiFalco, and Webmaster Zach Hubert. General member Tuba Farooqui was awarded with the Golden Member Award.

The LHS Key Club also received the Big Ten award for increasing the club’s membership by 10 percent, and the Early Bird Dues award, for turning in membership dues before the deadline. In addition, the club also received a plaque in recognition of hosting the 2013 Regional Training Conference in the fall, in which many clubs traveled to Livingston for this conference to learn about the club and service initiatives.
