PTA Reflections 2011 - Diversity Means ...

The PTA Reflections is a great program that encourages kids to be creative. In 2011 the theme was "Diversity means ...". Kids can submit their entries in different categories like drawing/paintings, music pieces, essays, photography etc. The best entries from each school are sent to next level - the school district level. From there, winners advance to county - state - national levels.

This was my first time visiting the award ceremony for the school district level. My daughter did not win, but she had fun participating. I was very impressed with the overall creativity.

The award ceremony was held in the Fire House Art Center. For a small town like Pleasanton, this is an impressive theater.

The interior is tastefully decorated.

Here are some of the photos I took of the exhibits. Remember, the theme was "Diversity Means ...". Each kid had his or her own take on the theme. The kids were from all grades - elementary all the way to high school.

I don't remember which of these won the prizes. They are all good.
