Students from seven Catholic schools in the Diocese of Trenton flexed their mental muscles during the annual Trenton Catholic Academy Creativity Fair held April 30 at the Hamilton high school. The competition, now in its 22nd year, tested the creative mettle of students in grades five through eight in eight subject areas as they competed for trophies and school-wide recognition.

The contest drew students from Incarnation – St. James School, Ewing; Our Lady of Sorrows School, Hamilton; St. Paul School, Burlington; St. Paul School, Princeton; St. Raphael School, Hamilton, St. Gregory the Great Academy, Hamilton Square, and Trenton Catholic Academy’s Lower School, Hamilton. Participants were judged on the fifth/sixth or seventh/eighth grade levels.

Each contestant was encouraged to exhibit their skill in one of eight academic or artistic categories. Art lovers explored their drawing or sculpting skills, while historians created dioramas of historically significant events. Wordsmiths either penned poetry or wrote and illustrated a young child’s book; mathematicians crunched the numbers to complete scaled models and floor plans of commercial buildings.

This year’s contest offered new opportunities to students in the religion and science categories. A “life of Christ” mosaic allowed students to illustrate knowledge of their faith, while a model of an animal cell allowed future scientists to develop their skills.

More than 140 students submitted projects to the contest; entries were displayed for a week at TCA for judging by that school’s faculty and staff prior to the awards ceremony. Each competitor received a certificate of participation in the contest, and the three top students in each category took home a trophy.

Students from the Trenton Catholic Academy’s Upper School’s National Honor Society’s Monsignor McCorristin Chapter organized and facilitated the entire competition, noted Kathleen Faraglia, TCA’s longtime Creativity Fair moderator. The high school students aided TCA’s Academic Council in the administration of tests, provided refreshments, and hosted the awards ceremony.
