U.S. Service Academies Night


Students please consider participating in the PTA Reflections Art Contest! You can create and submit a work of art in 6 categories:
Dance Choreography, Literature, Film Production, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual/3-D Art. The Art Theme this year is “Within Reach.” You could possibly create a piece for reflections that also fulfills a requirement in one of your classes. Just make sure your art is a new piece you created with the theme “Within Reach” in mind.
For those of you who are planning to apply to college or for scholarships, the PTA Reflections Program is a nationally recognized program.  It would be a great recognition to add to a college or scholarship application or to a portfolio.
Copper Hills High School winning entries will also be given a cash award! Most High School students could use a little extra cash, so why not join the fun and enter Reflections?
Entries are due to the main office with a completed entry form/consent form attached by OCTOBER 23rd, 2017.  You can find entry forms and rules in the main office or online on the school website. Questions? call or text Shena’ Allen at 801-755-7709
