FWES Reflections 2022-23
Deadline for submission entries extended to November 7th, 2022!
What is reflections?
The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for PreK-12th grade students. It offers students an opportunity to express themselves creatively in six different art categories and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme.
Official rules can be found here.
THEME (Deadline: November 7th, 2022)
The contest begins at the school level. FWES students enter in the appropriate division: Primary (PreK-2nd), Intermediate (3rd -5th) or Special Artist (ECS). Winning art will move up to County level competition, then potentially to State and Nationals!
The 2022–2023 Reflections Contest theme is Show Your Voice… Students are invited to reflect on this theme and create work(s) of art in one or more of the available categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and/or Visual Arts.
Each entry must have a title and be accompanied by an artist statement (between 10-100 words). The artist statement communicates what inspired the work, how it relates to the theme, and the content of the work. The artist's statement carries a lot of weight in the judging process, so write carefully!
