What is Reflections?
The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts program developed in 1969 to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Each year, students in grades pre-K through 12 create original artwork reflecting a theme. Entries that win at the school level may progress to the county, state, or even national level.
Who May Participate?
All LFE students!
What Are the Categories?
Students may enter one or more original works in the following six categories (students may enter multiple categories, but may not enter the same category more than once):

How Do I Enter?
Submit your artwork with a Student Entry Form to your teacher by November 16, 2018. Your teacher will submit it to the PTA.
No late entries will be accepted, no exceptions.
Every entry needs its own Student Entry Form, even if it is from the same student.
What Are the Rules?
How Are the Entries Judged?
Entries are judged blindly (students' names are not visible) by a panel of judges made up of teachers and staff members at LFE. Parents of LFE students are not eligible to be judges. Typically the panel has included the Art and Music teachers, Mr. Nielson, and other available teachers/staff.
Entries will be judged primarily on how well the student uses his or her artistic vision to portray the theme, originality, and creativity.
Under no conditions may parents or students contact the judges to dispute their decisions.
When are the Winners Announced?
Winners will be announced at school and posted here and on the Lucy Franklin Elementary PTA Facebook Page by November 30, 2018.
What Happens If I Win?
Winners will recieve a prize (to be determined) and a letter of congratulations. Their artwork will also be displayed at the Blue Springs District Showcase on December 5, 2018. Winners' artwork will also be submitted for further competition (county, then state, then nationals.)
