PTA Reflections 2011 Winner

Together We Can Build a Better World
Brian Koh - Second Grade - Duluth, Georgia

PTA Reflections is one of the country's oldest and largest arts recognition programs. In 2011 over 530,000 students, from kindergarten to high school, participated in six artistic disciplines. I judged the visual art division, and awarded the top prize to Brian Koh, a second-grader from Duluth, Georgia, for his Together We Can Build a Better World. Brian was recognized during a ceremony at the 115th Annual National PTA Convention and Exhibition earlier this month in Orlando, Florida. He will also receive a certificate, medallion, and $800 for his winning entry. A special award of $200 will be granted to his local PTA. Way to go Brian, we loved your work, and I hope this is just the beginning for you!
