Reflections

2017-2018 National PTA Reflections

The WVHS PTA believes all students deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in the annual arts Reflections Program. The PTA Reflections program is designed to enhance a quality arts education by providing opportunities for students to express themselves and to receive positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit works of art in six areas: VISUAL ARTS, DANCE, FILM PRODUCTION, LITERATURE, MUSICAL COMPOSITION, and PHOTOGRAPHY. For more than 40 years, this program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to create works of art for fun and recognition.


Students may enter as many works of art in as many categories as they wish, but only one of each student's entries in each category will move forward to the next judging level. All entries must follow both the General Rules and the Specific Rules for each category. All entries will be judged on expression of the theme, originality, creativity, and artistic merit. Five pieces of work from each category will be chosen to represent WVHS at the local Indian Prairie Parents’ Council level of the competition. A student's work may then be judged to continue to compete at the Northern Illinois District 36 level, next to the DuPage West Region and then on to the State of Illinois, and then to the National Competition.
