National PTA Reflections®

REFLECT on the theme. CREATE an original work. BE RECOGNIZED!

The 2022-23 Theme:  Show Your Voice!

Since 1969, the Reflections program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to explore their artistic talents by creating works of art for fun and recognition. Annually, hundreds of thousands of students participate in the Reflections program through their local PTAs. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to submit works of art in six categories:

• Dance Choreography • Film Production

• Literature • Musical Composition

• Photography • Visual Arts

School site winners in each category go on to compete at the district and, if selected, state levels. State winners are then considered for a National PTA Reflections award, including:

• Outstanding Interpretation Awards

• Awards of Excellence

• Awards of Merit
