Reflections Arts Contest: Photography

All children deserve opportunities to explore and be involved in the arts.  In support of this, the PTA’s “Reflections” program is currently underway!  This is our cornerstone arts program!  It offers your child the opportunity to earn local, state and even national recognition for original artwork they create in response to the theme “Within Reach”.

We are almost done sharing each of the six different categories that your child may participate in.  Today’s topic is Photography.

Photography is the process of creating an image.  Your student is a photographera person who captures their own thoughts and ideas with a camera.  By focusing on objects using various lenses, filters and light sources, photographers may demonstrate the use of photographic techniques conventionally or digitally.

Accepted forms of photography include:
A single photo
Photomontage (one seamless print of multiple original photos)
Multiple Exposure
Negative sandwich
Original black and white and color images are accepted.

Non-accepted forms of photography include:
Entries with added graphics over the image (including lettering)
Original film (negatives or transparencies) and multi-dimensional pieces

Does your child love to take photos?  Have an eye for capturing great pictures?  This is the category for them!  Details and specific entry requirements are posted on the bulletin board outside of the library.

As a “sweet” incentive, each student that submits an entry will receive a Menchie’s gift card!  Remember, all entries are due in by November 13th.

Please, consider having your child participate in this program!  Last year we had one of our students advance to the State level competition!   We’d love to have a repeat this year.

If you have questions about this program, or would like to volunteer, please email

Thank you!
