PORT ORCHARD — Chloe Ritter, a student at Mullenix Ridge Elementary, was one of 27 students named Washington State Parent Teacher Association Reflections Award winners for 2018-19.

The annual Reflections program is a Washington state and national PTA cultural arts competition that “provides an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works in dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, visual arts and a special artist category,” according to South Kitsap School District.

Mullenix Ridge PTA and the South Kitsap PTSA Council advanced Chloe’s photography entry to the state level, where approximately 900 submissions were judged.

The Mullenix Ridge student earned first place in the photography category for primary (pre-K through grade 2) students.

The Reflections theme this school year was “Heroes Around Me.” Chloe’s photo highlighted her UKO karate instructor as one of her heroes. Her entry will be sent on to the national PTA competition.
