both my children participated in the reflections program at school this year. they both did photographs. we just found out that my 6yr old got 2nd place in 1st grade for his photograph & my 10yr old got hm/3rd (they don't do 3rd it's 1st, 2nd & hm) in 5th grade for her photograph. i'm so happy for both my kids. my little guy was so excited. wednesday they are having a special breakfast at school for the kids who participated & their parents (i'm working regular breakfast so i can't attend :o( & they will be given their award certificates then. both of these awards are at the school level. my son's photograph will go onto compete at the next level, not sure if that's district or county.
for those that do not know what reflections is it's a national pta arts program. here's info on it.
