Westlake students Jake Hunter, Andrew Bovenzi and Jaden Jang received honorable mention at the Ohio PTA Reflections competition.

The Westlake Council of PTAs held its 2016-2017 Reflections Art Show & Judging last December and top entries recently advanced to the state-level competition.

This year’s PTA Reflections theme was "What is Your Story?" and the following students won their divisions in the following categories at the Art Show & Judging in December: Alex Spring, film production; Sahana Herman, Grace Neubeck and Katie Willi, literature; Andrew Bovenzi, music composition; Frankie Jacono, Sophia Jacono, Samantha Wohleber and Lauren Havelka, photography; Jaden Jang, Samuel Jang, Macy Sinreich and Sara Massa, visual arts.

Westlake Council of PTAs is proud to announce that three of these submissions earned honorable mention from the Ohio PTA: Jaden Jang’s "My Memory" in Visual Arts (Primary Grade Division), Jake Hunter’s "Jake Hunter" in Photography (Primary Grade Division), and Andrew Bovenzi’s "Discovery Prelude" in Music Composition (High School Division).

Founded in 1969, the National PTA Reflections program engages nearly 300,000 students and their families in arts education activities each year – encouraging students to explore the arts for fun and recognition. PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate, and students from all seven Westlake City schools took part in this year’s program.
