The PTA is excited to be bringing back to Crescent Heights the National PTA art contest called Reflections!

The theme is “Let Your Imagination Fly…”

The categories are:
**Visual Arts **Dance Choreography **Film Production
**Literature **Music Composition **Photography

The contest begins on October 19th, 2015 and ends on November 13th, 2015. Entries will be judged and some will advance to regional judging. If an entry wins at regionals, it will advance to state. If the entry wins at state, then it will advance to the national level.
An informational letter, general rules, and entry form will go home with your student this week. Please make sure to read the rules so that your students entry will not be disqualified. More details and category specific rules can be found at: this link. We will also have the rules available at school on the bulletin board near the library. Student entries can be turned into the office.

There is also a short YouTube video explaining the program: here.

If you have any questions, please contact your Reflections Chairperson, Dana Flynn, at
