The 2017 New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival’s State Showcase Scholarships have been made possible by the generous support of the Geraldine R. Dodge. The State Showcase Scholarships are made up of nine (9) individual awards each in the amount of $1,000. The intended purposes of the scholarships are to assist in furthering the arts education of the recipients. The recipients of the 2017 State Showcase Scholarships were selected from the individual students in 11th and 12th grade who showcased for adjudication at the 2017 New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival. Each of the 2017 Showcase Scholarship Recipients were selected by the specific Adjudication Artists who critiqued the students’ creative works at the New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival.
