Reflections Art Show October 11 & Awards Assembly October 25

Basic Entry Guidelines

  • Students may submit one entry for each of the 7 categories. All entries are due October 3.
  • Please ensure student entry forms are fully completed and signed by a parent/guardian.
  • Artwork must be the ORIGINAL work of only one student. Multiple people may perform a dance or appear in a video, photo or musical composition but the creator must be one student.
  • Artist Statement and Title are required for all pieces.
  • Interpretation of Theme score is HALF of the total artwork score so students should spend time thinking about their Artist Statement. This year’s theme is “Look Within.”
  • Artwork will be judged by professionals/individuals with experience in the relevant field.
  • All students will receive an award for participating!
