Participate in PTA's Reflections Program
"I Will Change the World By ...”


The Reflections Program is structured for PTAs to recognize students at the local, council, district, state, and national levels. Entries are first judged at the local level where selected works are chosen to represent the PTA at each subsequent level-council, district, or state-depending on each state PTA’s structure. Once entries reach the state level, the state PTA may select entries to submit to the National PTA. Awards of Excellence and Awards of Merit are recognized at the annual National PTA Convention and are displayed as a part of the program’s traveling exhibit.

Professionals working with individuals in the literature, musical composition, photography, and visual arts fields volunteer to judge student entries at the district level. Awards of Excellence, Merit, and Distinction are selected in each grade division for each of the six arts areas. Awards will be given at an awards reception that will take place at the opening of a show of the works that make it to the Fourth district level, for public viewing, sometime in January.

PTA Reflections Art Contest

The Reflections Art Competition “I Will Change the World By… ” is underway and the submission deadline is October 22, 2021!

We are hoping you can help us by encouraging your child to participate. This program is a wonderful way to encourage your child to think creatively. Plus, children who participate in this program love the recognition they get for their efforts (a great confidence booster). They can use art techniques they have learned in “Meet the Masters” or simply show their own personal artistic flare! Also, please know that entries are about creation - not perfection – so think out of the box and have FUN! 


To get involved, students submit an original piece, inspired by the annual theme, for their school’s Reflections Program in any of the following arts areas: Literature, Photography, and Visual Arts. The 2021-2022 theme is: "I Will Change the World By ...”


Showcase your talent.  Use your imagination to translate "I Will Change the World By ..." into an amazing piece of art. Remember there are no mistakes in art, only masterpieces!  


Thank you for ALL of your support and we can’t wait to see what your child creates!
