Panther Run Students Shine In PTA Reflections Contest

The Panther Run students honored as part of the PTA Reflections Art Contest.

Panther Run Elementary School is proud to announce that four talented students will be competing at the state level of the National PTA Reflections Art Contest.

Panther Run had 30 total entries for the PTA Reflections Art Contest. Out of those, 10 entries moved on to the county level. Six of those entries will move onto the state level. Moving onto the state level are second grader Gabriella Small with a total of three entries in photography, literature and music, Zoey Narain (first grade-dance), Ava-Marie Narain (second grade-dance) and Sophia Cole (fourth grade-visual arts). The other four amazing entries at the county level were fourth graders Brielle Gagnan (visual arts), Amelia Cole (visual arts), Taylor Burke (literature) and Jordan Molnar (photography).

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, more than 300,000 students create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. The theme for the 2019-20 program year is “Look Within.” Students submit their completed works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.
