On Thursday January 10th, 2019, Shoreline PTA Council and the District celebrated its young artists who participated in this year’s National Reflections PTA Art Contest.
A well-attended open house reception was held for the artists and families at the Shoreline Center. There were 166 entries total in 6 categories including: visual arts, photography, film production, music composition, literature and dance. There were artists representing each school in the district. District level winners were announced, with 31 finalists, and 25 honorable mentions. The finalist pieces will now move on to the state level competition, and winners at the state level will be announced in early May.
At the reception, people participated in a “People’s Choice” vote. The winner of the People’s Choice Award for 2018-19 is a tie between Taylor Draper for the visual arts piece “Girl Power” and Emma Howlett for the visual arts piece “When Grandpa Smiles”. Taylor is in 5th grade at Lake Forest Park and Emma is in 11th grade at Shorecrest. Congratulations to both for being the “People’s Choice”!
The theme for the 2019-2020 Reflections program has been announced. Please let your young artists know, they can start thinking about creating a piece for next year, with the theme “Look Within.”
Thanks to all who work to bring the opportunity for art expression to our local students through the Reflections program!
