Earl Warren celebrates student artists through national PTA Reflections Art Program


Earl Warren Middle School students are participating in the national PTA Reflections Art Program. This year’s theme is “Heroes Around Me”; all student dancers, musicians, photographers, artists and writers are encouraged to apply. A celebratory showcase and reception will be held on the new campus in the EWMS Cove attached to the Solana Beach Library on Oct. 30, 12:30-1:05 p.m. (Note this time changed from a previous later time.)

For 50 years, National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of students in pre-K through grade 12 create and submit original works of art in one or all of the available arts categories.

National level awards include the following:

Merit Award: Bronze Medal; Certificate of Merit; Work featured in the traveling exhibition.

Award of Excellence: $200 Young Artist Scholarship; Silver Medal; Certificate of Excellence; Work featured in the traveling exhibition.

Outstanding Interpretation Award: An expense-paid trip for awardee and chaperone to showcase work on stage at the National PTA Awards and Reflections Celebration; $800 Young Artist Scholarship; Gold Medal; Certificate of Outstanding Interpretation; Work featured in the traveling exhibition; $200 Prize for Local PTA Unit.
