Reflections Deadline Extended
10/10/2020 4:24 pm
Participating in Reflections is easy--all your children need to do is reflect on this year’s theme to find inspiration and then create a piece of original artwork to share with the Orange Hunt Elementary School community. Students may submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. Students’ artwork will be judged by a panel of volunteer judges and winning submissions for each category will be sent to the Fairfax County Council PTA (FCCPTA) to compete against students from throughout the county.
The deadline has been extended and student entries are now due on 16 October. There will be two steps for submitting your children’s entries this year. First, you will need to fill out your child’s official entry form, which has been provided by the FCCPTA. After you submit that form, you will be directed to a page acknowledging your submission; this page includes a Dropbox link--please click that link and submit a photograph or video of your child’s artwork. Please be sure the name of the file you enter in the official entry form matches the name of the file you upload to the Dropbox link.
Here are the links to the official entry forms:

Reflections Art Contest
9/30/2020 11:12 am
We are excited to announce the 2020-2021 PTA Reflections Program and invite all OHES students to create a piece of original artwork based on this year’s Reflections theme: I Matter Because...
The PTA Reflections program aims to help all students explore their thoughts, feelings and ideas while developing their artistic literacy and increasing their confidence. Students create original artwork inspired by their reflections on this year’s theme. Students may submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. Participating in Reflections is easy and all students are encouraged to think about this year’s theme and use their imagination to create artwork to share with the Orange Hunt Elementary School community. Students’ artwork will be judged by a panel of volunteer judges and winning submissions for each category will be sent to the Fairfax County Council PTA to compete against students from throughout the county.
Student entries are due on October 9th and all student entries must be submitted digitally (as photographs or videos) this year. We’re still working out the details on how you will submit your children’s artwork and will let you know how to do so as soon as possible. In the meantime, please share this year’s theme with your children and encourage them to start thinking about the amazing art they are going to create! Please contact this year's Reflections chair, Scott James at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions. Click here for entry packet.
