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.
Entries will not be eligible for judging if they do not meet contest specification for the category, so please read all rules carefully. Selected entries will possibly be forwarded to compete at Council, District, State and National Levels.
You may enter as many times as you wish; however, we prefer quality, quanitity. Attach a separate entry form to each entry, with original signatures.
All students' entries will be on display, so please come view them all at the Gallery Night. Refreshments will be served. Each student who submitted an entry will receive a ribbon when artwork is returned in November.
Participation in the Reflections Program is organized by school
grade. Student works are critiqued against others in the same grade
division. This allows recognition and judging of artworks by
appropriate developmental age and skill levels. The four grade
divisions are as follows:
- Primary Preschool: Grade 2 or up to age 7
- Intermediate Grades: 3-5 or ages 8-10
- Middle/Junior Grades: 6-8 or ages 11-13
- Senior Grades: 9-12 or ages 14
