According to the National PTA, every year thousands of students nationwide enter their own works in the PTA Reflections contest. The categories in this contest are dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. This past year’s contest was based on the theme “Within Reach”. The works that are submitted are judged on interpretation, creativity, and technique.
Here at Morgan, we had many students submit their works because of their own personal reason, or because their teachers recommended that they enter. Fortunately, we had many winners from our school. These students won in different categories and at different levels. In the literature category, sophomore Sarah Auletta won 1st place, junior Marie Kane won 2nd place, and senior Katie Kozak won 3rd. In the music composition category, senior Wyatt Reu won 1st place. In the photography category, senior Courtney Viglione won 1st place, senior Kate Daley won 2nd place, and senior Juan Avila won 3rd place. And finally, in the visual arts category, sophomore Logan Cummings won 1st place.
All first place winners competed at the state level. Sarah Auletta came in 2nd place for high school literature and Courtney Viglione came in 2nd place for high school photography.
All Clinton Public School winners were recognized on February 28, 2018, at 6:15pm at the Morgan Learning Commons. On Wednesday, May 16th, all state winners will be honored at the CT PTA Reflections Awards Ceremony at Roger Ludlowe Middle School in Fairfield. Next year The 2018-2019 PTA reflections theme is “Heroes around me”.
