JAG Awards 2021

We hope you all enjoyed this year’s Jag Awards and the magic of Simon Mandel.  It truly was a magical evening.  As I know you are aware there is a lot of magic needed to make a live show work.  It would not have been possible without the assistance of Piscataway’s staff and team of volunteers.  But most importantly this production would not have been possible without those members that entered some of their best work to the JAG Awards 2021 during the most difficult time in our history.  Congratulations to this year’s winners.
