May has been an exciting month for the Visual & Performing Arts department. High School students from Arts, American History, and Malcolm X Shabazz dominated the 2023 Tenth District Congressional Art Competition. Overall First Place winner from Arts High School, Jaret Perez’s artwork, “Golden Boy,” will be displayed in the Nation’s Capital for one year. Among all the talented young artists showcased, NBOE brought home the most medals, with five 1st place winners, three 2nd place winners, and three 3rd place winners. All artwork is currently on view at the Newark Museum. Congratulations to these exceptional visual artists on their achievements!
