PODCAST: And the Beat Goes On: Celebrating Arts Ed at the 2021 NJ Governor’s Awards

The 2021 New Jersey Governor’s Awards in Arts Education took place Saturday, May 22. The ceremony honored 98 students and 17 education leaders who have demonstrated excellence in and dedication to arts education. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this was the second virtual Governor’s Awards in its 41-year history.

In this podcast, we speak with Program Director Priscilla Hopkins-Smith, two Governor’s Awards alumni, two of this year's award-winners, and a New Jersey arts educator about the impact this program has had on young people for generations.
