National PTA’s Reflections Arts Program provides opportunities for our students to express themselves through their talents in the arts. It includes two age groups for elementary schools: Primary for pre-K through grade 2 and Intermediate for students in grades 3 through 5. Reflections also includes a special needs group to encourage inclusive participation. Students can enter artwork across six creative disciplines: visual art, photography, literature/creative writing, film/video, music composition, and/or dance choreography.
Each year Reflections carries a thematic focus, and every student entry must include a written statement by the artist regarding how their piece reflects the theme. The theme for 2020-2021 is “I Matter Because…/Yo Importo Porque…“.
Submissions are due by Dec. 15, 2020. Please see the Reflections Guidelines document for information and instructions.
