Essex County Track Meet 2021


The 2021 Essex County Track Meet attracted countless teens to Newark School Stadium today in Newark. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the annual track meet was cancelled last year so teens were excited to gather today for some fierce competition. There were more than 600 teens from various high schools throughout the County of Essex, many of whom had experienced anxiety and isolation as a result of remote learning. The High School Academic Support Program was on hand to provide Pandemic Relief for our teens which included: masks, hand sanitizer, toiletries, beverages, treats, summer job listings for teens, college scholarship lists and eyewear from EyeBuyDirect to reduce eyestrain during remote learning.
