NEW MILFORD, N.J. -- Sarah Almeda, a New Milford High School senior, won the national title at the Courtroom Artist Student Competition this weekend in Boise, Idaho.
It was the first year the New Jersey State Bar had its Mock Trial Courtroom Art program, for high-school students. Almeda was the gold-medal winner there, and she replicated her success at the national competition, as well.
A Tuesday Facebook post from the high school both congratulated Almeda and thanked her art teacher, Ms. Bettini, for her support as well.
