On March 20, 2019, students from Point Pleasant Boro High School attended the New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival at Ocean County College. This was the last day of the festival where students are in company with other students from various counties in New Jersey.

The festival took place at Ocean County College during the college’s spring break. The festival runs for two days in Ocean County, March 19th and 20th. In a brief interview with art teacher Mrs. Mitrueter, she commented that, “Teen Arts is a festival to celebrate students creativity ranging from art, to music, and performing.”
