Tonight was the awards ceremony for the Reflections program sponsored by E's school's PTA.
"Each year, the PTA Reflections Program challenges students to create art inspired by a specific theme, and students submit entries to a local PTA or PTSA. Nationally, the program has six arts areas—dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and visual arts—"
Reflections Program PTA
This year's theme was "Together we can..."
E submitted entries in three of the six catagories: Literature, Photography, and Visual Arts.
He drew a picture of a farm, he took a photograph of a birdhouse, that he and his father built, and he wrote a story about a Hermit Crab.
He won honorable mentions for his photograph and his short story, 2 $5 Target gift cards, a participation medal and a trophy for entering art in three catagories.
Every student is individually acknowledged on stage, and given a participation medal.
E loves to hear his name read outloud in a room full of people. It doens't matter if he wins or looses, he just likes the recognition!
I highly reccommend this program to everyone who has children in a school that participates.
I am a very proud mommy!!
