PTA Reflections Contest

Does your child love to "Let his/her imagination fly" when creating things? Please consider sharing that creativity with the PTA!

Reflections is a PTA sponsored cultural arts program that your child can participate in. Last year at Drake, we had 7 participants, (which is awesome!), and one very talented Drake student, Vardaan Shah, won at the state PTA level for his musical composition. We hope that we get even more participants this year so that we can have an art show in the spring.

The categories are Visual Arts, Literature, Dance Choreography, Video Production, Music Composition, Photography, and Special Artist. The deadline will be December 11, 2015. You can get the rules, entry forms, and more info here: http://www.ohiopta.org/PROGRAMS.aspx. Click on the Reflections tab. The theme this year is "Let Your Imagination Fly".

Also, please feel free to contact Beth Babits with any questions at ebabits@gmail.com.
