PTA Reflections Contest
What Is Your Story?
The national PTA sponsors an annual arts contest for students -- Reflections. Do you like to dance, produce a film, write a poem or story, compose a song, take a picture or create a piece of visual art? This year's Reflections theme is "What Is Your Story?" Tell us your story through one of the following: dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, visual arts.

Once you pick your category, please let your teacher know and they will provide you with the guidelines and rules for your submission. Pieces will be due on or before October 14, 2006. Judging will take place for our school and top entries will move on to local, state, and possibly the national level. Please submit all digital files and/or questions to Stephanie Gazonas. Any type of art or sculptures can be dropped off at the front office.
