Each year, the National PTA Reflections program offers local, regional, state and national opportunities for young artists in PreK through Grade 12 to be recognized for their creativity in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and the visual arts. This year’s theme was What Is Your Story?. See our prior post / photo gallery of the school level winners or the video announcement on Manual AM (starts at ~6 minute mark).
Fifteen Manual students received awards at the 15th District PTA Reflections ceremony in December, and the students listed below were recognized at the state level by the Kentucky PTA for their submissions. Alexandria Kinard’s entry was selected to advance to the national level. Click here to view the national winners from the 2016-17 school year.
