Hope & Spring

Welcome to Create2020.  The PTA's Create2020 program provides opportunities for recognition in and access to the arts.  It is open to all Howard County Public Schools (Pre-K to 12th Grade).

Create2020 is modeled after the National PTA Reflections Art Program.

  • Dance Choreography

  • Film Production

  • Literature

  • Music Composition

  • Photography

  • Visual Arts

All art will be judged based on interpretation of  the theme "Hope & Spring," creativity, and technique.  All entries will be displayed in our anonymous gallery and judged by volunteers by grade-level.

What does hope mean to you?

Spring is a time of renewal. Plants and trees are sprouting. Birds and insects are more visible and are making music with their chirping. These are all signs of hope. Draw, write a poem, make up a story with characters seen in nature, make a film, create a dance, all inspired by things seen in nature during Spring.

Hearts Up to Mrs. Guertin for her creative input.


UPDATED: Please submit all entries by May 8, 2020.
