There were 57 State Qualifiers who continued on to Washington State PTA for further judging. There were also 12 pieces that received the honorable Judge's Choice Award.
Calling all artists! Students in pre-K through 12th grade are invited to "Show Your Voice" in the 2022-2023 Reflections art program.
Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life.
Students must create original works of art in response to a theme -- this year's theme is "Show Your Voice." Students will submit their completed works of art in one, or all, of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.
Entries from local PTAs will be due to Council on Friday, December 2nd*.
