The artwork was selected to represent each journal business sponsor.  Over 200 entries were submitted from among eight Monmouth County schools.

The student winners and their teachers were recognized at an ice cream social held at the Monmouth Day Care Center on June 11th. The art journal is a major fundraiser for the Center. 

MDCC Executive Director Heidi Zaentz told the young artists and their parents why the art journal to which they contributed was so important stating, “We are a nonprofit organization where 90% of our students are from struggling families that find it hard to make ends meet.  So, we subsidize their tuition with fundraisers like this journal.”
