This is a fabulous program that promotes the study of our great state through research, writing, and corresponding. My students have gained so much knowledge about and pride in the state of New Jersey by participating in the writing contest. Which is a research and writing project about a student chosen aspect of New Jersey. We are also enhancing our writing skills and enriching our appreciation for New Jersey by participating in the Celebrate New Jersey pen pal program. Both of these programs are very meaningful to the students and thus give them a purpose to strive to reach their highest capability.
