2022-2023 Theme:
Show Your Voice!

Reflections is a National PTA arts in education program. The program was started in 1969 and is the largest arts in its kind in the United States. Students have the opportunity to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works created around a theme.

Participants in Reflections will have their work reviewed by local art professionals. Receive a certificate and ribbon. Outstanding work may be sent to the PTA council, state, and national competitions. Top winners at the national level receive award packages, some of which include cash prizes!

Does your child love to paint or draw? Write stories, poems or essays? Take photos? Make films or compose music? Dance? If so, then encourage them to sign up for the Reflections Competition.

Create your art work and tell us what the theme means to you.
