A week ago Weston and Sam recieved letters in the mail saying they had both won in Reflections contest at the District Level.
They'd been looking forward to the awards ceremony after school in the District office building ever since.
They recieved awards on the school level last...erm? December maybe? And, so it was fun to see their entries had gone on to win again. And it's especially cool when you think theirs were chosen from 252 entries in the county!
Weston got an Honorable Mention in the Photography catergory for this cool photo....
I love that shot he got. Unique perspective, eh?
Sam recieved Second Place in 3D Art for this fun sculpture of a wee robot and his hardware trimmings (yep, the boy still loves robots)...
Sam also won First Place in the Photography Catergory and this meant his entry got to go on and compete at the Regional Level. He won for this photo...
What we didn't know before we went was that they already knew who had won at the Regional level and so we were happy and surprised when they announced his name again! This means his photo will go on to compete at the State Level. The cute little guy was pretty excited about the posh medallions he recieved. He'd been looking forward to it for days. And that morning the first thing he said to me was, "Today we get to get our trophies!!!" (He was hoping for a trophy...but he was more than happy with the medallions)
He even got interviewed by a lady from the paper. That would be fun if they print something about him and hopefully we won't miss it.
I'm so proud of my guys. Doing all the projects is a lot of work, but I think it's totally worth it. We felt bad that Emmett didn't win anything, but he's already planning an entry for next year!
