Photo IconHello, Reflections judge! Thank you for agreeing to judge the Photography category. Below are the Photography entries in the Middle School division, which includes students in grades 6-8.

Remember the judging criteria: Creativity, Technique, and Interpretation of the Theme (“Heroes Around Me”). For more details, see the Photography Judging Introduction page and the Judge’s Instructions & Rubric.  You can designate a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place entry. Ties are allowed, but not at 1st Place. If you think the work warrants it, you can also choose one or more Honorable Mentions.
