PTA Reflections Program

Explore the Arts and Express Yourself! For 50 years, National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create and submit original works of art in one or all of the available arts categories.

  • Dance choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film production
  • Music composition
  • Visual arts

This year’s theme is Hero’s Around Me. Entries are due by October 29th and will be judged on October 30th.

Be on the lookout for inspirational and brainstorming workshops to help get those creative juices flowing!
