NJ Youth Poet Laureate Submission Deadline Extended

NJ Youth Poet Laureate Submission Deadline Extended!

We've decided to extend the deadline on our NJ Youth Poet Laureate poetry contest, so high school poets now have until December 1, 2016 (a few extra weeks) to enter! There are three winners, one from each region of the state - North, Central, and South - and awesome prizes like the chance to perform your work at various poetry events throughout the state, a Governor's Award, and having your poems published in an anthology. All you have to do is submit up to five poems to the contest - it's completely free!

But despite the extension, the deadline is coming up soon, so enter now! Entries will only be accepted up until December 1st, 2016 at 11:59 PM, so tell the high school poets in your life to submit now!

Head over to for all of the details and to submit online!

Watch Out: A Juried High School Film Festival

From showcasing artists in exhibitions, to theatrical or musical performances, the Garden State is ripe with talent and we wanted to share another fun event for high schoolers in the area. The first annual WATCH OUT film festival at the Morris Museum, organized in collaboration with the Film Production Program at Fairleigh Dickinson University, is especially for young filmmakers who are high school students. 

This film festival celebrates the creative efforts of high school educators and students in the medium of film. This is a wonderful opportunity for young filmmakers to share their work in a public forum on the big screen in a 300-seat theater.

The event will be held at the Morris Museum (photo) on October 25th, 2016 at 5 PM. Tickets are on sale now for the event and can be purchased through the museum. Please contact the with questions.
