Explore the Arts and Express Yourself

National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts, which boosts student confidence and success in the arts and in life.

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them succeed in school and life.

Students submit their completed works of art in one or all available categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.


ENTRY DEADLINE: 3PM Friday, October 27th 

COLLECTION: Submit final entries (with an official completed entry form) in person to Ms. Petry in the Cascade Ridge Music Room by 3 PM on Friday, October 27th.
