Arts offer competition

-A A +A

Students from across Oldham County were recognized during the annual PTA Reflections Celebration at the Oldham County Schools Arts Center.

PTA Reflections is America’s oldest and is the largest arts education program of its kind. It was started in 1969 to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves through various artistic forms. Each year, students are recognized for bringing the year’s theme to live through film production, dance choreography, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

This year’s theme is “Believe, Dream, Inspire” and students submitted hundreds of entries for the 13th PTA District celebration.

Awards were presented on several levels, culminating with Awards of Merit and Awards of Excellence for the top pieces in each category. District winners were announced in each of the six categories, including at least one from each level — primary, intermediate, middle and senior. District winners move on to state judging with the possibility of advancing to national level judging later this spring.

Last year, North Oldham High student Alyssa Dewey’s musical composition entry moved on to national competition and another 18 students received state-level awards. Dewey again has a musical composition entry moving on to state-level judging.
