The PTA Reflections Program is the PTA’s cornerstone arts program. It offers students the opportunity to earn local state and even national recognition for original artwork they create in response to a specific theme. Students who participate in the Reflections Program get an opportunity to explore the arts and culture, develop creative thinking and problem-solving skill and recognize themselves as artists.

This year’s entries should reflect upon and interpret the theme, “Within Reach.” Categories are:  Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts.

Students submit their artwork to Local PTAs for initial judging. In Connecticut, local PTAs submit their first place winning entries to the State Office. Top entries from the State PTA Reflections contest advance to the National PTA for the final round of judging. National PTA awards are announced in May.

Submissions are due Jan. 3, 2018 to the PTA at your child’s school.  Visit the CT PTA website for more information.
