ROXBURY, NJ - Three students from Roxbury High School were selected for the 2020 New Jersey State Youth Arts Month Exhibit in Trenton.

Youth Art Month (YAM) is proclaimed to emphasize the value of art education for all children and encourage support for quality school art programs. The students were chosen last month by the Art Educators of New Jersey in the national observance of Youth Art Month. The selections celebrated New Jersey's most talented students.

The Roxbury students included freshman Angelina Stigliano for her Charcoal and Colored Pencil artwork from Scott Schilling’s class, sophomore Helena Geraci for her Black and White Photography from Renee Zengel’s class, and junior Alexa Hernandez for her Pen and Ink work from Nancy Valenta’s class.
