2020-2021: I Matter Because...

National PTA is looking for the theme for future Reflections programs. Students can submit their theme ideas online or on paper: http://capta.org/programs-events/reflections/theme-search/

Reflections is the annual PTSA Art Contest:

Explore the Arts!  Participate in PTA Reflections!
Reflect on the theme. Create an original work. Be recognized.
Each entry must be created by ONLY ONE artist, no teams.

We are looking for creative students who would like to submit their artwork for the PTA's annual Reflections Art Program.  All students grades are encouraged to enter their artwork.  Students may submit art from any of these six categories:  Dance Choreography, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Video Production, and Visual Arts.  The category of Visual Arts includes: drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and textiles, just to name a few.  There are specific rules to each category in addition to the official rules.  Please make sure to review these rules before submitting the art piece.  Students may submit more than one artwork from any of the 6 categories.

Entry forms  in English and Spanish along with the Official Rules are attached below.  Each year there is a new theme for the art show.    On the entry form, please have your artist write a brief statement about how his/her artwork relates to this theme.  All artwork is due the first week of October, 2020

REFLECTIONS: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ARTS!

PTSA’s national Reflections Art Program has brought the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTSA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art

PARTICIPATION IS EASY, EXCITING AND EMPOWERING

All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:
  • Dance/choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film production
  • Music composition
  • Visual arts
 

                    

                    

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTSAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTSAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTSA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTSA judging round.

Divisions (5)
To allow student artworks to be recognized and judged with the appropriate developmental age and skill levels in mind, the Reflections Program is organized by school grade, offering 5 divisions:
  • Primary – Preschool-Grade 2
  • Intermediate – Grades 3-5
  • Middle/Junior – Grades 6-8
  • Senior – Grades 9-12
  • Special Artist – Non-Graded
 State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:
  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTSA convention
  • Prizes including an Award of Excellence medal, certificate and $100 Savings Bond presented on stage at convention
  • An expense paid trip for the award-winning student and one parent/guardian to convention

National-level Award of Excellence honorees are recognized at the National PTSA Convention, plus their artworks are featured in Reflections’ popular traveling national exhibit.
