Welcome to the Walled Lake Consolidated School District's Reflections Webpage!
The National PTA Reflections Theme for the 2016-2017 School Year is:
"What Is Your Story?"

 WLCSD Students: Tell us your interpretation of the theme: “What Is Your Story?"  Only new and original works of art will be accepted. Enter up to two pieces per the following art categories you qualify for:

  1. Dance Choreography
  2. Film Production
  3. Literature
  4. Music Composition
  5. Photography
  6. Visual Arts (2D and 3D)
  7. Special Artist (must qualify)

No experience is required to participate in Reflections! Choose the arts category you’re interested in, create an original piece of artwork based on the theme, “What Is Your Story” and be recognized as an artist in our community!

Follow your school's PTA deadlines and instructions on how to enter.  Please Read Rules prior to submitting your work to ensure all the requirements are met.  The Student Entry Form & the Consent Form (for those students who have other students in their pieces) can be found below the Program Rules. 

In your artist statement, tell us about your work and what it means to you.

  1. How does your work relate to the theme?
  2. What is your personal connection to the theme?
  3. What did you use to create your work (supplies, technology, instrumentation, props, etc)?
  4. What/Who was your inspiration?
Judging Criteria

Volunteer arts and education experts review submissions without knowledge of the entrants' identity.  Judges look for personal interpretations on the program theme that best exemplify creativity and technical skill. 

  1. Interpretation-How closely the piece relates to the theme, based on the artwork itself and the artist statement.
  2. Creativity-How creative and original the piece is in its conception of the theme and its presentation
  3. Technique-The level of skill demonstrated in the basic principles/techniques of the arts area. 

Visit the art gallery on the national PTA website for examples of national award-winning works.
