NJSBA and Arts Ed NJ are looking for students to sing, dance, play music, perform theater or deliver poetry to engage and energize the audience.

Please submit your school’s virtual or in-person performances that were recorded safely from the 2020 – 2021 school year in either art, music, theatre, dance, digital media or other visual arts.

Submit a performance today. The submission deadline is Friday, June 25.
