Recognition and judging

All students who participate in the Reflections program will be recognized. All entries will be showcased.  Baldwin's top entries will advance to the Austin Council of PTAs and then possibly to the state or national level.


Entries will be judged on the following 3 criteria (total of 40 points):

  1. Interpretation of Theme - How closely the submission relates to the theme "I Am Hopeful Because" based on the artwork and the artist statement. Children should use the artist statement section on the entry form to explain the connection between the submission and the topic. (20 points)

  2. Artistic Merit and Creativity - How creative and original the artwork is in its exploration and presentation of the theme. (12 points)

  3. Mastery of Medium - The level of skill demonstrated in the basic principles/techniques of the arts area. (8 points)
