Reflections Submissions Due Friday, November 22

For the last 50 years, the National PTA’s Reflections Program has helped students in Pre-K through Grade 12 express themselves through the arts — dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students are encouraged to create and submit original works that go along with this year’s theme, Look Within. Winners at the local level have the opportunity to advance to the national level. National winners are announced in May and celebrated in June during the National PTA’s Annual Convention & Expo. Click here to learn more about the Reflections program and how to participate!
