More Info

Celebrating 50 Years of National PTA REFLECTIONS and honoring Roosevelt Artists!

Congratulations to all the artists who participated in Reflections this year!  It was an incredible turnout!  We had our first 3D entries, more songs and films than ever before and wonderful photography, dance and visual arts submissions.  During the celebration we had two volunteer string duet performances creating a beautiful atmosphere!

While we do want to celebrate every artist a single piece from each category must be selected to move on to the next round of judging for our district.  Judges who are experts in their field and who do not have children who attend Roosevelt nor have a special attachment to any of the artists were asked to choose.  Art is very subjective and different judges may have chosen different pieces.  Each judge was given a rubric for scoring which put a lot of weight on the interpretation of the theme which is the subject / title / artist statement and also considers creativity and grade level appropriate technique.

Congratulations to the artists whose work was selected to move on to the district judging the full list is below.  Two artists have work that was selected at the district level to move on and is currently being judged at the regional level: Annabelle Lee with her Literature entry “Benched” and Marleigh Neumeyer for her Special Artist entries in Literature “Feel the Sky”, Photography “Beauty In The Sky”, Music Composition “The Moon Shines In You”, Film Composition “A Diabetes Story”,  and Visual Art “Music Is In Me”.  Artwork that moves on to the state level will be updated here.
