1. Choose Your Category:
Students should create original art around this year’s theme, “Look Within.” All work must be the student’s own. Students may submit entries in as many arts categories as they like, including:
• Film production
• Music composition
• Visual arts
2. Choose Your Grade Division:
Grade Divisions — Students may enter in the appropriate division for their grade:
• Primary: Preschool-Grade 2
• Intermediate: Grades 3-5
• Middle School: Grades 6
• Special Artist: All grades welcome
This year a new division of the Reflections program was introduced – the Special Artist Division. This is a non-graded division limited to students whose physical, cognitive or mental health challenges meet the guidelines in the American Disabilities Act.
Qualifying students create their own artwork. But, they may receive non-artistic accommodation and assistance from an adult.
Students who qualify for the Special Artist Division may choose to enter in the traditional four grade divisions.
If this is the case, students will follow all general and arts category rules, but may submit an entry in the grade division most closely aligned to their cognitive or functional abilities. The student is then recognized and awarded as part of the general student population without regard to special needs or challenges.
