2016-2017 Theme: “What Is Your Story?”

LCHS 7/8 Deadline:  Friday, October 14, 2016, 3:30 p.m.

It’s time for students to unleash their creative talents! The PTA Reflections Program has begun. This year’s theme is “What Is Your Story?” Using this theme as inspiration, students are invited to create projects in the following categories: Literature, Visual Arts, Photography, Musical Composition, Film Production, Dance Choreography and Special Artist.

The DEADLINE for submissions is FRIDAY, October 14 at 3:30 p.m. Entries must be placed in the box in the LCHS office marked “LCHS 7/8 Reflections Projects” by the deadline. A Student Entry Form MUST be attached to each entry.

All 7/8 students are invited to submit multiple entries of original works in any or all of the following categories: Photography Visual Arts Video Production Literature Music Composition Dance Choreography Special Artist category. Here’s how Reflections works: Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.
