“We are excited to host our Annual Archives and History Day Photography Contest which provides high school students with the opportunity to learn about their local history while showcasing their creativity,” said Clerk Hanlon. “My hope is that this year’s contest will drive a new appreciation for Monmouth County’s rich history amongst high school students across the County.”
