High Point Honors 'Kids Who Rock' Winners

Banquet recognizes extraordinary children in Monmouth and Ocean counties

(Red Bank, N.J.) - High Point - one of the top five New Jersey auto insurers - today honored the 26 winners of WRAT's (95.9 FM) "Kids Who Rock!" campaign during a banquet at the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch. The celebration was the culmination of an 11-week awards program that recognized children from Monmouth and Ocean counties who did extraordinary things for their families and communities.

"Our sponsorship of the 'Kids Who Rock' program provided High Point with a wonderful opportunity to learn about and recognize the amazing things children are doing each day in Monmouth and Ocean counties," said Jim Tignanelli, President of the High Point group of insurance companies. "Sponsoring 'Kids Who Rock' was a natural fit for High Point because we pride ourselves on providing extraordinary service to our customers. And, clearly, each winner demonstrated similar characteristics in their communities."

According to Mr. Tignanelli, the sponsorship is one of many ways in which High Point supports communities throughout New Jersey.

Candidates were between the ages of 8-16 years old, and were nominated by sponsors based on their extraordinary accomplishments on behalf of their families or communities. At least two children were recognized on-air every week as "Kids Who Rock" and each of them received a $25 gift certificate to the Monmouth Mall and four tickets to the awards banquet. Winners included:
