PTA Reflections Arts Program

PTA Reflections Arts Program

The Theme for 2023-24 Reflections: 

 I am Hopeful Because.


The Reflections Art Program is a national program that celebrates art and creativity in our children. It is the perfect opportunity for students, K - 12, to express themselves artistically. Whether by visual art, film, or dance, Reflections is the chance to show your artistic side.

Student Entry Form 


PTA's Reflections Program 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 inspired by the annual theme

  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.


Students may submit original creations in one or more of these six categories:

  • Visual Arts

  • Literature

  • Photography

  • Dance Choreography

  • Film Production

  • Music Composition


 Student Entry Packet including entry form and rules, available in English and Spanish


Artwork is submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. 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 artwork is then submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round. 


State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:

  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention

  • Prizes including an Award of Excellence medal, certificate and a $100 savings bond presented on stage at the convention

  • An expense-paid trip for the award-winning student and one parent/guardian to the convention
