See 6 Jersey Shore H.S. Students Who Won ‘Axe’ Performance Awards
Six high school performers have been voted as audience favorites and awarded scholarship money as the Axelrod Performing Arts Center in Deal celebrates their talent!
72 students from 32 high schools throughout Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex counties took part, and a panel of theater professionals selected the finalists in each of six categories. Then online voting took place over two weeks with over 5,000 ballots.
Four winning seniors were awarded $1000, and a top male and female underclassman each received $500. The award money provided by Cabaret for Life was in memory of Amy Fredericks, a local music director and teacher who frequently volunteered there.
So here are the winners!
