Taylorsville student Joshua Johnson wins national PTA Reflections award

Bennion Jr. High 7th-grader Joshua Johnson has been selected to receive the National Award of Outstanding Interpretation in the National PTA’s Reflection program. Joshua is one of only seven students nationwide to receive the award. Each year more than 300,000 students in pre-K through 12th grade participate in the Reflections program by submitting works of visual, performing and literary art based on a national theme.

“We applaud all of the students who participated in the Reflections program this school year, and we are thrilled to recognize the winners for their talents and creativity,” said National PTA president Leslie Boggs.

After winning at the school, regional and state levels, Joshua’s piece was considered by judges at the national level before being named one the overall awardees.

Congratulations, Joshua!
