2018-2019 Reflections Theme is “Heroes Around Me” The Reflections Program is a National PTA and Washington State PTA cultural arts competition. The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works.
Young artists get involved through their local PTA or PTSA. A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas. Only original works of art are accepted. The six art areas are: Visual Arts Photography, Literature, Music Composition, Dance Choreography, and Film Production. Council will accept 20 total advancing entries per school. Here is a flyer you can post at your school. Write in your Reflections Chair and deadline information.
Deadline for turning in advancing local entries to Council: Friday, November 16th Reflections Chairs and Presidents - the drop-off day for advancing entries to Council is Friday, November 16th. You will receive an email with links to two Google docs: one to sign up for a time slot to drop off your advancing entries and the second to record basic information about your advancing entries. Council will accept 20 total advancing entries per school.
Note - this is NOT the same as the Student Entry Portal that is maintained by National PTA. You will need to enter information about your advancing entries in both places.
