Reflections Art Contest

ReflectionsLogoNational PTA Reflections is America’s oldest and largest arts education program of its kind.  The program was developed in 1969 by Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork.

Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through film production, dance choreography, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.

National PTA Theme for 2017-2018 is ‘Within Reach


DEADLINE for submission is Wednesday, November 29, 2017. Parent signature REQUIRED on the completed form, available in the front office. For specific rules in each category, click here.
