MILLBURN, NJ — Even with the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, the Millburn/Shirt Hills Art Advisory Committee (MSHAAC) still honored its annual winners of the high school art scholarship awards.

Although the traditional Art Advisory Committee Scholarship Ceremony Gala was unable to be held this year, the committee still honored the eight award-winning students.

According to the release from the MSHAAC, Representatives of the committee delivered gift bags with gift certificates, awards and treats door to door to the homes of the five senior and three junior winners, as well as to HS AP art teacher, Kathleen Harte Gilsenan.

In order to name scholarship winners, the committee views every AP junior and seniors student’s portfolio and selects those that contain not only impressive individual pieces, but demonstrate an overall progression and high achievement.

In addition, according to the committee, winners are encouraged to remember their artistic roots in Millburn Township. The group hopes this year's crop of winners will still have the chance to get their work displayed at the Millburn Library later this year.
