The Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA 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

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 PTAs, 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 PTAs 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 PTA 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 PTA judging round. Please review general entry rules.

 

State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:

  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention

  • Prizes including an Award of Excellence medal, certificate and a $100 savings bond presented on stage at convention

  • An expense-paid trip for the award-winning student and one parent/guardian to convention
