NVHS Students Shine in the PTSA Reflections Competition!

 The Neuqua Valley High School PTSA would like to thank all the students who shared their insight and talents in the 2013-2014 Reflections competition.  For almost 50 years, the Reflections Program has encouraged students to explore their artistic talents and creativity, and recognizes students for their artistic endeavors.

This year’s theme was Believe, Dream, Inspire and once again NVHS was represented by an extraordinary group of talented young people. Although the Indian Prairie Parents Council was forced to cancel it's scheduled ceremony and exhibition recognizing all advancing students due to inclement weather, the NVHS PTSA wants to congratulate the following students:

Junior Kai Gaskin’s literature entry titled Raise to Power
Sophomore Tajesvi Bhat’s literature entry titled Imagination's True Power and visual arts entry titled What is Believing?
Sophomore Vandana Raghuvanshi’s literature entry titled A Simple Gift

Several NVHS students were honored during the Illinois PTA DuPage West Region Reflections Ceremony on March 4. Receiving Honorable Mention were:

Junior Zhaoyuan Pan's photography entry titled Believe, Dream, Inspire...
Sophomore Sophia Urso's visual arts entry titled Inspiration From the Past

It’s a great honor to announce that four students remain in the competition, advancing to the State of Illinois level. Good luck to the following students and their entries:

Freshman Anna Li’s visual arts entry titled In Search of Light
Junior Zhaoyuan Pan’s visual arts entry titled Believe, Dream, Inspire
Sophomore Sophia Urso's visual arts entry titled Any Dream is Possible
Sophomore Isabelle Ruiz's photography entry titled Jump for the Stars

The NVHS community and the PTSA are extremely proud to be represented by these fine and talented young people. The Reflections committee extends hearty congratulations and thanks to all the students who entered the 2013-2014 Reflections program.

Results will continue to be updated on the NVHS PTSA web site as the competition continues all the way to the National level in Washington D.C.

Congratulations to all, and best of luck to our advancing students!
