Reflections Art Program

Reflections Art Program- I Matter Because…

The theme for the 2020-21 Reflections Art Program is I Matter Because…

Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas through art.  This year students will submit their completed works of art, virtually, in one of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.

Artworks are initially submitted to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.  For more information about the various art categories and official rules please click here.

You can learn more about how the theme was selected and how it can inspire young artists from National PTA President Elect-Anna King.

Deadline is Oct. 12, 2020 via online submission.  click here for student entry application
