Students participated in three all day training conferences for the NJ Governor’s Jefferson Awards Students in Action Program.
One of the new tag lines for the Jefferson Awards Foundation Students in Action program is Multiplying Good. You will see in the photos that students were asked to place on post it notes how they multiply good. These post-its of three different colors were placed on a big poster board and created the logo. The students from all three days were able to combine their notes and show how NJ is #MultiplyingGood.
