Working Together for a Bright Future

VHS social studies teacher selected for NJ research grant

Congratulations to Vineland High School Social Studies teacher Dave DiCostanzo, who was named one of only seven educators in New Jersey selected to receive the New Jersey Council for the Social Studies grant “Telling our Story: Living in New Jersey in the 1770s.”

The grant provides a unique opportunity to work with research specialists and two distinguished professors on original research that is in the personal papers of people from New Jersey in the 18th century. It also allows the scholars to translate their research into stories that will engage people of all ages.
