This Just In!
Are you interested in the Arts?
The DKG Society International has an online art gallery in which your work could be displayed.
From the website: "The approved Policy Statement of the Arts & Humanities Jury has at its core the following explanation: “The online Arts & Humanities Gallery shall be maintained so that members of DKG may display their creative arts…and all may enjoy, respect and learn more about excellence in arts and crafts.” Visit the gallery often and take advantage of these artistic and creative “gifts to the world.”
There are categories of Visual Art, Music, Writing and Video. Within each of these there are sub-categories. There is a place for just about anything you create! The next submission deadline is Arts & Humanities Submissions for Spring Gallery (open Jan. 15- Feb. 15) This gives you time to peruse the current gallery and get your work ready.
Kimberly Dickstein, Iota Chapter, was inducted into DKGNJ last May. This month she is featured in an article in the NJEA Review. Her 10th-grade English class at Haddonfield Memorial High School was reading Ishmael Beah’s A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier when Dickstein found a way to relate the words on the page with the reality of so many. Be sure to read the whole article! https://www.njea.org/if-you-can-help-you-must/. She is in the local news, too! Kimberly will be recognized among 18 Camden County residents who will be honored for their unselfish contributions to improving their community at the 2019 Camden County Freedom Medal ceremony on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
