Encourage your students’ artistic exploration! All Hopkinton students are invited to participate. Reflections recognizes and awards preK – grade 12 students’ artistry & creativity at the local, state and national level. Encourage your children to show us their talent in any of the following categories:

  • Dance Choreography (includes gymnastics, ice skating, any form of dance expression)
  • Film/Video Production
  • Literature
  • Musical Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts (includes drawing, painting, print making & collage)

There are four grade divisions: primary, intermediate, middle/junior, and senior. Entries are judged by how well the theme is interpreted and delivered.
Each child receives a free ice cream just for entering!
