Reflections 2020-21

Hello WIZARDS it’s that time of the year where we can all show our artistic side . It is REFLECTIONS time . 


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 the pre-selected theme " I Matter Because… ", while increasing community awareness on the importance of the arts in education.


All artwork submissions are digital and due on Oct 23,020. The student submission form is online this year and will be released when available. Please read the Rules for each category before you start your work. If you have any questions, please contact Reflections chair at 


Experienced artists will review your work for interpretation of theme, creativity and technique. We look forward to celebrating your artistry and achievement in the arts! 


Help us pick the theme idea that will spark fun and creativity during the 2022—2023 Reflections program! The student who submits the winning entry will receive a $100 prize from National PTA.  National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.


Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts in response to a student-selected theme.  Past themes and duplicate submissions are not considered. This means we’re looking for the most original theme ideas.  To participate, please submit your theme idea online by November 1, 2020.  If you have any questions, please send an email to
