Reflections

The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by the theme. Students participate by submitting original, student-created artwork for entry in any of the six categories: Dance Choreography, Music Composition, Film Production, Photography, Literature, and 2D Visual Arts.

This year’s theme is “LOOK WITHIN.” Entries will be judged primarily on how well the student uses their artistic vision to portray the theme, their originality and creativity. An artist statement and title are required and very important to the judging process. Be sure to include them on the entry form.
