Partnership for a Drug-Free NJ



Two students from the Kearny School District were finalist in the Partnership for a Drug-Free NJ poster contest.  Thirty finalists were chosen from over 8,000 works submitted. They received entries from over 200 schools from every county in NJ. The thirty finalists will have their work displayed on a poster that will be distributed to every 3rd and 4th grade class in the state. This was a great event.  We are very proud of our students! 

Congratulations to Bryan Veloso

           

Congratulations to Bryan Veloso on receiving an honorable mention in the national CAD Academy LEED home design competition. LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification.  The competition challenged students to create a home design that is both functional and energy efficient to meet the national standards. Bryan’s design incorporated elements of design, function and eco-friendly materials to qualify for the highest certification.  Bryan’s design was created using Archi CAD and BIM modeling software.  He is a senior in Advanced Architecture.
