PTA Reflections Program

For more than 40 years, the National PTA Reflections Program has encouraged millions of students to explore their artistic talents.

Students are encouraged to submit theme-based works of art in six areas: Dance choreography; film production; literature; music composition; photography; visual arts (which includes art forms such as drawing, painting, printmaking, and collage, 3D artworks).

Any student may enter, letting their creativity run wild around the theme.

The Theme for 2019-20 is Look WithinLook WithinEntry Deadline: NOVEMBER 1st  

General Guidelines:

  • Please do not put your name on the actual artwork (front or back). If you do, we will need to tape over it to ensure blind judging of entries.

  • Each entry MUST include a title and a written artist statement.
  • All entries submitted must be original, new pieces of artwork inspired by the current year’s Reflections Program theme (i.e. “Within Reach” – see sub-themes above).
  • Each entry must be the work of one individual student. Assistance from teachers, parents, or friends is not permitted except in special cases such as students with disabilities.
  • Other individuals may appear in or perform a student’s work, but the work itself must be the creative product of one student.
  • Use of copyrighted material is prohibited, except for background music in dance choreography and film production entries when cited.
  • A student may develop an entry in or outside of school.
  • Students may enter in one or more arts categories.
  • Entries will be judged on how well the student uses his or her artistic vision to portray the theme, originality, and creativity.
