WEST CALDWELL, NJ — James Caldwell High School recently recognized the artistic accomplishments of Anastasia Ghering, Julia Fernandez and Sophia Ricci, who each received a prestigious award in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition, and senior Christian Badach, who received an Honorable Mention Award in the Drexel University High School Photography contest for his photo entitled “Cart.”

It is with great pride that James Caldwell High School recognizes the artistic accomplishment of senior Christian Badach, who received an Honorable Mention Award in the Drexel University High School Photography contest for his photo entitled “Cart.”

“When I sent my photograph into the Drexel University Photography contest, I didn’t expect to win or even advance to the final selection,” said Badach. “It is a huge honor to win an Honorable Mention Award and to have my work be put in the exhibition.”

Badach’s work will be honored on Feb. 10 at Drexel University during the opening reception. His photograph will be displayed from Feb.10 through March 5, and he will also receive a $50 gift certificate.

Submissions in 29 categories of creative work in the Scholastic & Writing Awards are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients.  Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. 

Once again, the regional competition of scholastic submissions has surpassed last year's numbers, with a total of more than 4,200 submissions from more than 1,500 students in grades 7-12.

Three students in the visual arts program at James Caldwell High School were among those chosen in this highly competitive event.

Ghering won a Gold Key, the highest award, for her detail-oriented pen and ink of a gothic building.  

Fernandez won an Honorable Mention for his oil painting of two women of history, done in color and modeling. 

Ricci won both a Silver Key and Honorable Mention for her elaborate self-portrait and a creative collage incorporating the art of dance.

According to James Caldwell High School, the honorees are exceptional artists and students, and the school congratulated them on this honor.

Don’t Complain; Vote!

It’s no secret that people have strong feelings about what’s happening in our country. It’s also true that much of politics is local. In November, 11th District residents will have the opportunity to choose a new congressional representative who will not only serve as a critical check on the federal level, but also determine how our distract fares ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
