On May 17, 2017 The Department of Human Services (DHS) honored 14 New Jersey high school and middle school students at an event in Trenton hosted by its Division of Family Development. The students were honored for their winning entries in the 2017 Teen Media Contest, which celebrated the students' artistic portrayal of a favorite weekend memory with their family.
Cherry Hill West's 10th grade student, Sharina Kuo, mentored by art teacher Sandra R. Sharp, won First Place in the High School Division. Winners were chosen based upon their interpretation of the year's theme. In addition to having her hand drawn artwork representing family unity featured in the 2018 calendar, Sharina received a plaque of achievement, an American Express gift card, and a pair of day passes to Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey.
All winning entries will be displayed in the Statehouse Annex Tunnel from May 22-24.
