Become a 2020-2021 Discovery PTSA member NOW!

Reflections is a long-standing National PTA program that helps students celebrate their creativity. By exploring their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, students will develop their artistic literacy and increase their confidence. 
 
We hope all Discovery students create an original work of art in one (or all!) of six available categories. 
 
This year, the theme for Reflections is “I matter because...” 
 
Given our previous support for the Black Lives Matter movement, we and others in the community find the theme problematic as it opens the door to provide interpretations that are counter to the Black Lives Matter movement. No submissions that equate to “All Lives Matter” will be accepted for judging. 
 
We encourage students to think about the theme in the alternate way of “I am valuable because...” or “I am strong because...” when developing their entries for one or more of the available categories. Each category has different entry rules. Please read them carefully before submitting.
  • MUSIC COMPOSITION is the process of creating a new piece of music. The composer (student submitting entry) is a person who expresses their own thoughts and ideas through the use of sound. The student composer may submit an entry performed by an individual or group and/or make use of a sound library generated performance of a composed score. Student composers are not required to perform their composition. Entry rules: https://www.wastatepta.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Music-Composition-Rules-20-21.pdf
  • PHOTOGRAPHY is the process of creating an image. The photographer (student submitting entry) is a person who captures their own thoughts and ideas with a camera. By focusing on objects using various lenses, filters and light sources, photographers may demonstrate the use of photographic techniques conventionally or digitally. Entry rules: https://www.wastatepta.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Photography-Rules-20-21.pdf
Please keep your original work. Entries that will be advancing to the district level will be collected after initial judging is complete.
