Northside Elementary School second grade student Hiram Cowhey recently won first place in the dance choreography category at the New York State (NYS) Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Reflections contest. Reflections is the PTA’s cornerstone arts program developed to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves.
Cowhey’s entry exemplified the competition’s theme ‘The Magic of a Moment.’ His original ice skating composition outshined 563 statewide performers to earn him the NYS Parent Teacher Association Award of Excellence and qualify him for the national finals. Cowhey will showcase his entry at the 117th NYS PTA Convention in Saratoga Springs in November.
