An Invitation to Students!  Create a Project & See it Exhibited at the Museum

The Museum invites students grades 3-12 to share their creative talent and unique ideas.  Students are invited to submit a project in one of three media:  creative writing, visual arts, or computer arts.  Projects must address four themes:  The teacher's work in the classroom; the teacher's role in the union; the teacher's role in the community, and the teacher's impact upon the student.  Selected students' projects will appear in an exhibit at the Museum entitled Celebrating Teachers.

Original projects and registration forms must be received by the Museum by October 17, 2015.

Teachers are welcome to schedule presentations for their classes by members of the Museum's Speakers' Bureau.  Speakers provide labor studies lessons as a means of inspiration for the students.  Outside of school, students are welcome to visit and tour the Museum for help with ideas.

Angelica M. Santomauro, Ed.D., Director of the Museum, announced the project, saying, "This program enables young people to express themselves creatively and think about the important contributions of working people throughout New Jersey.  It also is a lifetime opportunity to have one's own work printed in a book.  Participating students will always remember the experience."

The Celebrating Teachers exhibit will be unveiled at a reception at the Museum on Friday, October 23, 2015 at 6PM.  All participating students, their families, friends and teachers are invited to the reception.  The Museum's annual National Arts and Humanities Month program follows at 7PM.

The student project and book are made possible by the generous support of the Passaic County Education Associations (PCEA).  This is the thirteenth year in which the Museum and the PCEA have worked together on an annual educational project.
