Reflections 2019-2020

It is now time to begin thinking about the PTA’s annual Reflections program. This year, we are asking our students to “Look Within”, which is our theme. Students can enter their interpretation of what they believe “Look Within” means to them, through music composition, literature, film production, dance choreography, photography or visual arts. The best part of Reflections is that it is free to enter! All you need to do provide is your creativity! Students can enter up to one piece per category. A celebration will be held for all students that enter the Reflections competition in the spring. For the past few years, Hickory Woods has had the most entries in the district that advance to the state and national level and we are looking forward to another great year.

All Reflections entries are due to the main office by Friday, November 15th, 2019 by 4:00PM! The entries must be accompanied by an entry form and a consent form (if applicable). Click the links below for the official rules, required forms, and rules.

Please read the rules (listed below) prior to submitting your work to ensure all the requirements are met. The Student Entry Form must be fully filled out and turned in with the final product. On the entry form, it asks for an artist statement. When writing the artist statement, consider the following:

  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?
