To allow student’s artwork to be recognized and judged with the appropriate developmental age and skill levels in mind, the Reflections Program is organized by school grade level Primary – Preschool-Grade 2 Intermediate – Grades 3-5 Special Artist Division This is a non-graded division limited to students whose physical, cognitive or mental health challenges meet the guidelines in the American Disabilities Act. Qualifying students create their own artwork. But, they may receive non- artistic accommodation and assistance from an adult. Students who qualify for the Special Artist Division may choose to enter the traditional grade divisions. If this is the case, students will follow all general and arts category rules, but may submit an entry in the grade division most closely aligned to their cognitive or functional abilities. The student is then recognized and awarded as part of the general student population without regard to special needs or challenges. *Rules and entry forms are found in the office and online at www.prospectmillpta.org/reflections.html www.prospectmillpta.org/reflections.html Entries are due Wednesday, November 19 at 9am in the school cafeteria.
