The New Jersey School Boards Association is looking for students to sing, dance, perform music and show off other talents to energize the audience at the annual Workshop conference, which is sponsored by NJSBA, the New Jersey Association of School Administrators and the New Jersey Association of School Business Officials.

The event will take place at the Atlantic City Convention Center from Monday through Thursday, Oct. 23-26, 2023. Selected student performance will perform during the conference on Oct. 24 or 25.

Research links involvement in the fine and performing arts to improved school attendance and increased academic performance. Arts education is also correlated with positive social-emotional development in students. To highlight the NJSBA’s commitment to the arts, and the talent and skills of New Jersey public school students, Workshop will showcase several student performances throughout the conference.

Submission Details We urge the art department at your school to submit an application to perform at the annual Workshop. This could be your opportunity to shine a spotlight on your students in front of school officials from across New Jersey. Performance groups are limited to a maximum of 15 students.

All submissions will receive equal consideration. The deadline for receiving the completed Student Performance submission form is May 5, 2023.

Those submitting performances will be notified of the Association’s decision by late May 2023. For more information, contact Kurt Rebovich.
