Reflections At a Glance

The Reflections Arts Program offers an opportunity for creative young people to participate in a themed National Arts Competition with six separate categories.
Theme for Reflections: The theme for this year’s competition is Heroes Among Us; it’s the 50th anniversary.
Reflections categories: The categories are Visual Arts, Photography, Dance Choreography, Music Composition, Literature, and Film Production.
Who can enter? All students attending Poly Drive are eligible to enter the competition. Work is judged by age division. The Primary division is kindergarten-2nd grade. The Intermediate division is 3rd-5th grade.
Do I have to buy art supplies in order for my child to participate? No. The PTA has purchased art materials that are available for students to borrow, and take home in order to create their submission piece.
When is the entry deadline? Entries must be received by Friday January 18, 2019 in order to participate in the competition.
What happens after the work is submitted? The entries are judged first at Poly Drive. The top two entries in each age division and category will move on to the state level Reflections competition, with the possibility of advancing to the national level.
