The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students. The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme, while increasing community awareness on the importance of the arts in education.
Participation and appreciation for the arts is the Reflections Program's goal. Although the Reflections Program follows a "contest" format, winning should not be the emphasis.
Participation in the Reflections Program is a great way for students to explore and learn about various art forms. Creating art is a valuable learning process that challenges students to use their critical thinking skills as well as their creative talents to create art that supports a specific theme.
Students may submit an entry in any of the six arts areas listed below. Only original works of art are accepted. Depending on local PTA guidelines, students may enter more than one work of art. The six arts areas are as follows:
Participation in the California Reflections program is open to all students in attendance at PTA/PTSA schools where the program is sponsored.
Primary-Preschool - Grade 2
*Special Artist- limited to students whose physical, cognitive or mental health challenges meet the guidelines in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Students may submit entries only through a PTA/PTSA in good standing.
All submitted entries must be original works and must relate to the annual Reflections program theme.
Each entry must be the work of only one student. Assistance from teachers, parents, or friends is not permitted except in special cases (such as those with visual or physical disabilities.)
Participation is meant to encourage creativity and exploration.
