PTSA Reflections

Thank you for your willingness to learn about and support the Reflections Art Contest open to all of our wonderful students! 
The National PTA Reflections program encourages students of all ages and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. There is a category (or more) for everyone! Students may enter into any and all categories they choose. We encourage students to explore all mediums and even try something new!

Entries are judged on creative ability and interpretation of the theme.  Students are recognized each year for their artistic ingenuity to bring the theme to life in a way that is personal and meaningful. Entries from each category may even advance to the Regional, State, and National levels! 2019-2020 Reflections Entry Form.pdf
