I Matter Because….

Calling all Creative Henderson Hawks!

Reflections is a nation-wide arts competition, sponsored by the PTA. It is open to ALL students and fosters creativity and self-expression. Students are encouraged to submit works inspired by this year’s theme. “I Matter Because…”, in the following categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. Students may submit pieces in as many categories as they desire!

Winners are chosen based on interpretation of the theme and creativity – not solely on artistic talent. For the past several years, many of our HMES participants have advanced to both the county and state level of competition.

Entry forms and instructions are available on the Georgia PTA website:

or can be accessed via the attached pdf. Submissions are due: Friday, October 16th (or earlier).

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Abby Mowinski (Reflections chair) with any questions at Can’t wait to see what your wonderful imaginations create this year!


Fridays at HMES are designated as Spirit days!
