What is Reflections? 
Reflections is a program established by the National PTA over 50 years ago to support students’ participation in Fine Arts in schools.  Through participation in the Arts, students gain self-confidence, find ways to express their feelings and ideas, explore fundamental questions of humanity, develop creative thinking skills that support problem-solving, and derive satisfaction and pride from completing a creation of their own making. 
 
In the PTA Reflections Program, students submit entries in any of six art categories that reflect on the current annual theme.  These entries are judged along side other entries from their school and recognitions are awarded.  While technique and execution are recognized, more emphasis is placed on interpretation of the annual theme.  Entries can advance to Council, State and even National level judging events.
