RP Student Winner In Youth Art Month Design Contest

A Roselle Park student has been selected as a winner in the Art Educators of New Jersey’s (AENJ) 2016 Youth Art Month Design Contest.

Olivia Qiu, a seventh grader at Roselle Park Middle School, has been selected by the AENJ to represent the state during celebrations of Youth Art Month 2016. Her artwork will appear on the 2016 State Youth Art Month Button.

Her art teachers, Tina Jones and Carrie Russoniello, supported her in participating in the AENJ Youth Art Month Design Contest.

More than 100 entries from throughout the state were received and only eight (8) works – including Olivia’s – were selected as design winners. These designs can be viewed at the Artsonia website (link) and will also be displayed at the New Jersey Youth Art Month exhibit in the State House in Trenton.
