What is Reflections?

image33

The Reflections Program is a National PTA and Washington State PTA cultural arts competition.The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works.Young artists get involved through their local PTA or PTSA. A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas. Only original works of art are accepted. The six art areas are: Visual Arts Photography, Literature, Music Composition, Dance Choreography, and Film Production.


Why Reflections?
Reflections is so much more than "just an art contest."  It helps kids take risks, be inspired, think creatively and receive positive recognition and be celebrated for their works of art.  It also allows our community to celebrate creativity in our students!

Studies have shown there is  the relationship between the arts and health and well-being across one’s lifespan.  Thank you for encouraging art by doing Reflections at your PTA!

Entries are judged on creative ability and interpretation of the theme. The program is structured for PTAs to recognize students at the local, council, state, and national levels. Entries are first judged at the local level and selected works are chosen to represent the PTA at each subsequent level. If a PTA is a member of a council, they will send the chosen entries to the council program according to the guidelines established by their council. If a PTA is not a member of a council, they will submit their entries directly to Washington State PTA.

Once entries reach the state-level, the state PTA may select one entry (Outstanding Interpretation Award) per grade division, per arts category (a total of 30) to submit to the National PTA. National first, second, and third place, and honorable mention entries are recognized at the National PTA Annual Convention.

All PTAs/PTSAs in good standing may sponsor the program. Students may only submit entries through a PTA/PTSA. Parent groups not affiliated with the National PTA are not eligible to sponsor this program.
