The 2020 Reflections Program has gone virtual!  To submit your entry, please take a picture of your project and email it, along with your Student Entry Form and Project Entry Label (found below) to reflections@endeavourptsa.org by October 30, 2020.  The 12 top scoring entries, regardless of category, will advance to the District level for further judging.  Entries that move on to the district will need to be physically submitted for judging, so proper mounting and presentation will be required at that point.

The Reflections Program is a National PTA and WSPTA cultural arts competition. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works.

Jaguar artists can get involved in Reflections through the Endeavour PTSA. A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas. Only original works of art are accepted.

Literature

Works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, prose, drama, short stories and lyrics

Music Composition

Original musical composition, with or without words                              

Dance Choreography

Originally choreographed dance composition

Film Production

Original works, with or without sound, of animation, narrative, documentary, experimental or music video/film                               

Visual Arts (2D & 3D)

Drawing, painting in tempera, oil, acrylic, watercolor & t-shirt paints, computer generated art, two-dimensional collage, printmaking, needlework & leather tooling

Photography

Prints in color or black and white, including techniques: photogram, retouched, montage, sandwich and multiple exposure.

Entries are judged on creative ability and interpretation of the theme:

I Matter Because...

Student works are critiqued against others in the same grade division. This allows recognition and judging of artworks by appropriate developmental age and skill levels. Endeavour Elementary may compete in the following divisions: Primary (grades K-2), Intermediate (Grades 3-5) & Special Artists (non-graded division limited to students whose physical, cognitive or mental health challenges meet the guidelines set forth in the American Disabilities Act).
