Reflections Art Competition

PTA Reflections Art Competition


The National PTA Reflections program is PTA’s cornerstone arts program. It offers students the opportunity to earn local, state and even national recognition for original artwork they create in response to a specific theme. Students who participate in the Reflections Program get an opportunity to explore the arts and culture, develop creative thinking and problem-solving skills and recognize themselves as artists.


Students should create an original piece of art based on the 2015-16 theme: "Let your Imagination Fly." They can compete in six art categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, music competition, photography, and visual arts.  Students may enter in more than one art category. Families can support their children’s participation by creating time and space for students to work on their entries, providing encouragement and needed materials and volunteering to support the Reflections Program. Entries should represent students’ unique creativity—adults are welcome to encourage students but are asked not to assist in any way with their interpretation of the theme or artistic expression.
