Several weeks ago, I shared news of students who had entered the annual PTA Reflections Art Contest at their local school, and had entries selected to compete at the county level of competition.
The county judging has been completed, and several talented local students have art pieces that will now move on for judging at the state level. This nationwide art program asks students from elementary to high school to interpret a theme in one of six different categories of art. This year's theme was "The Magic of the Moment."
At the middle school level, Glenwood Middle School had the work of three students selected as finalists in the Reflections Art contest. Their artwork will now move to the state level for judging.
The winning pieces included a photography entry by Kaitlyn O'Byrne, which also received the designation of Outstanding Interpretation of Theme. Victoria Day received an Award of Excellence for her literature entry, and Gianna Graziano received an Award of Merit in literature.
At the high school level, Glenelg High School also had the work of three students selected as finalists that will now move onto the state level for judging.
Stephanie Asher received an Award of Excellence for her photography entry. Sara Hart received an Award of Excellence for her dance entry, and Sarah Wieder received an Award of Excellence for her film entry.
Good luck to all of these students as their artwork competes at the state level. The top winners at the state level will go to the national level.
