    Reflections Program

    The 2017-2018 theme is “Within Reach”

    The National PTA Reflections program encourages students of all ages and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts in an educational way. Through the program, National PTA and PTAs across the country urge students in preschool through grade 12 to create and submit original works of art in the medium of their choice — dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography or visual arts — reflecting on a specific theme.

    There also is a special artist division to provide all students the opportunity to participate in the program. Submissions are reviewed by experts in the visual, literary and performing arts, and students are recognized each year for their artistic ingenuity to bring the theme to life in a way that is personal and meaningful.
