Congratulations to Reflections contest winners

on April 5, 2021

Monroe-Woodbury PTA is proud to announce the winners of local, regional and state Reflections contests. This year’s PTA Reflections contest theme was “I Matter Because…”

Once again the district’s Reflections program had a very successful year with entries from kindergarten through grade 12. Some students participated in several different categories, ranging from literature and visual arts to dance choreography and film production.

Of 40 local winners, 34 moved on to the regional competition and 12 of those moved on to the state competition. Once entries reach the state level, the competition from all over NY state is intense. Four M-W students, Emily Abrignani, Emilio Perez, Evan Pitkofsky and Samantha Larkin, were NYS Award of Merit winners. Middle School student, Aveline Gaines, won the NYS Award of Excellence for Photography and will now compete at the national level.

Congratulations to all the M-W students on this great accomplishment.
