Reflections

NEW DEADLINE
All ENTRIES MUST BE POSTMARKED/HAND DELIVERED ON OR BEFORE JANUARY 24, 2014 TO THE INDIANA PTA STATE OFFICE !

2013-2014 Theme:

“Believe, Dream, Inspire”

Colorado PTA Member, Mary Lou Anderson, started the Reflections program in 1969. Since that time it has become one of the most popular programs National PTA offers. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create works of art for fun and recognition.

Students can now submit works in SIX areas:

  • Literature
  • Musical Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual
  • Dance choreography
  • Film/video production

More that 10 million students have participated the Reflections program. Therefore, the word “Program” is used instead of “contest” because the focus is on recognition. In its more than 30-year history the program has encouraged millions of students across the nation to create works of art.

Each year, the Reflections Program challenges students to create art that supports a specific theme. Themes are selected from thousands of ideas submitted by students through the National PTA’s Reflections Program. ALL units must be in good standing.

Here are our Reflections students who are being honored:
