SUMMIT, NJ - Four members of the highly-acclaimed Summit High School Speech and Debate team -- Grace Milsten, Kimberly Lee, Hope Kovera, and Bella Anidjar -- were honored and received scholarships at the 36th Annual Governor's Awards in Arts Education in Trenton.
 
The Governor's Awards recognize New Jersey high school students who demonstrate excellence in the performing and visual arts. The Summit High School students were all first place winners at the New Jersey Speech and Debate League State Championship Tournament held in March. 
 
The Hilltopper state champions included:
 
Grace Milsten - Duo Interpretation
Kimberly Lee - Dramatic Interpretation
Hope Kovera - Duo Interpretation
Bella Anidjar - Improvisational Acting
 
Lee was selected to perform a portion of her Dramatic Interpretation, "Radiance of a Thousand Suns, the Hiroshima Project," for the ceremony.
 
 
The Governor’s Awards in Arts Education began in 1980 to promote awareness and appreciation of the arts, recognizing the creativity, talent and leadership of the award winners.
 
Each year, awards are presented to approximately 20 educators and 80 students. National and statewide organizations select the students for their exemplary work in creative writing, speech, dance, music, theatre and visual arts and the leaders for their exceptional commitment and contribution to arts education.
 
The program also recognizes arts educators and arts education advocates, whose leadership has helped nurture the development of students in the arts across the state. -
