The National PTA Reflections Program is America's oldest and largest arts education program of its kind. Reflections welcomes students of all grade levels and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Students are encouraged to reflect on the common theme and create original artistic works in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

What do we win?  Is this a contest?

  • This is not technically a contest. It is truly a program created to give students a forum to explore the arts and expand their interests and talents.
  • Students are individually judged on their project and not judged against the other students.
  • They are judged on how well they explain their art fits the theme, the mastery of the medium used and their creativity.

    • Award of Excellence (blue ribbon)
    • Award of Merit (red ribbon)
    • Honorable Mention (white ribbon)
  • Submissions will be displayed at the school and top entries will be featured in the yearbook.
