Each year, students in Pre-K through Grade 12 are invited to create and submit original works of art in the areas of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts. Based on State PTA rules and guidelines, these works of art may be submitted for state and national level awards and recognition opportunities.
The National PTA received over 900 student entries from 47 state PTA congresses in all the available arts categories. Of these 900 students, around 200 are recognized in different levels of achievement, with the highest honor of recognition being "Outstanding Interpretation."
We are very proud to announce that Sonia Singh, age 14, was the top recognized student with her original song, "Rainbow", in the entire Music Composition category this year! Sonia has been taking music lessons with our School Director, Miss Collette, here at CM School of Fine Arts. She specifically has focused on composition for the last 3 years. With her teacher's help, Sonia has climbed up the ranks from first winning at regional, then state, to now winning the highest level of recognition at the highest ranked music composition award available! Thank you, Miss Collette, for your teaching and super big congratulations to Sonia for your outstanding accomplishment!
