Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired

  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork

  • Experience the fun and joy of making art

  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art 

  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art

 

All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork. Students may enter in one or more of the below arts categories:

  • Dance Choreography

  • Literature

  • Photography

  • Film Production

  • Music Composition

  • Visual Arts

 

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged. 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 details, Click Here
