CNHS Junior Honored During Law Day Event

Colts Neck High School’s Ty Blitstein was recently honored at the Monmouth County Hall of Records during the county’s Law Day event. The junior won first place in the Monmouth County Law Day essay competition, which had a theme of “free speech, free press, free society” this year.

Ty is a student in the Law & Public Service Magnet Program at Colts Neck High School, a rigorous program geared toward highly motivated students with demonstrated interests and abilities in history, politics, government, law, volunteerism, and leadership. Skills targeted for development include problem-solving, critical thinking, reading, and writing, oral communication, research, and organization. The values of citizenship, justice, and service serve as the foundation for academic study. Students study history as it relates to the development of the United States and the evolution of world societies and governments. Students will explore political thought, ethical philosophy, and leadership theory. Skills and knowledge are enhanced by active experiences in volunteerism and public service on the school, local, state and national levels. Career opportunities are explored during externships in government offices, volunteer agencies, and law-related institutions.
