7th Grader's Award-Winning Photo Competes at State

Posted in News & Announcements

Congratulations to 7th grader Catherine Osborne for her achievements with her PTSA Reflections project. Catherine did a Photography category project for the 2014-2015 theme, The World Would be a Better Place If… Catherine enjoys photography as a hobby, particularly nature photography. She took a picture of a bee for her Reflections project.  

After receiving an Award of Excellent at Albion, Catherine’s project received an Award of Excellence at the PTA Region 17 level and moved on to competition at the State level. Her project did not win an award at the State competition, however, her artwork is now on display at The Leonardo in an exhibit called Spark, which is highlighting all of the projects that made it to the State level of Reflections. This exhibit is open to the public through the end of August.

It’s not too early to start thinking about a project for the 2015-2016 school year. The Reflections theme will be Let Your Imagination Fly.
