Reflections Program

It is that time of the school year again where we can celebrate our students creativity by participating in the National PTA Reflections program!  This years theme is "Dream, Believe & Inspire" Entries will be accepted in the following genres:  dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts (which includes art forms such as drawing, painting, print making, and collage). Entries are judged anonymously by independent experts from the community.

The PTA Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves artistically and to receive positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit works.

Submit your entries during the period December 2, 2013 until December 6, 2013.  The Reflections Awards Ceremony is held on December 18 in High School Commons at 6:30 PM, with a special viewing of entries beginning at 6:00 PM.  All entrants will be recognized and all entries displayed. Top entries in each category are sent on to competition at the state level. Local entries have even advanced to the national level in past years. Each year, over one hundred Orange students participate.

To enter: Students take the first step by being familiar with the rules.  Every entrant should read the General Rules as well as the rules specific to the category or categories in which they will enter (e.g. photography or music composition). In addition, every entry must be accompanied by a completed entry form with a parent signature. Entry forms and rules are also available at MHS front office. Bring entries to the MHS front office or BMS Media Center in the half-hour prior to the beginning of the school day, or to the OHS Guidance Department.

Questions and requests for printed copies should be directed to the Reflections Chairpersons:  Paul Stark and Kim Stewart
