2017-18 Reflections Entries

2017-18 dMHS Reflections Award Winners

Thank you to all of our students who participated in this year’s PTSA Reflections Art Contest. We had so many wonderfully creative and impressive projects turned in. Our judges truly had a tough time judging between these quality projects to determine who would be moving on to district.

Entries were judged on October 12, 2017, by volunteer judges from around our community who have expertise in each category. All projects were scored using a rubric provided by the district. All entries were separated and given their awards based on category, grade, and the rubric totals.

The arts categories are as follows: Literature, Visual Arts, Photography, Dance Choreography, Film/Video Production, and Music Composition. There is also a Special Artist Division (for our ECE students). We had a total of 94 projects submitted. There were a total of 66 projects who received awards in different categories. Only the 1st Place winners moved on to district for judging. The awards categories and total number of students receiving awards in those categories are as follows. 1st Place/Creative Interpretation (25), 2nd Place/Award of Excellence (13), 3rd Place/Award of Merit (13), and Honorable Mention (15).
