Reflections Art Program
Reflections® is a National PTA program that has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969 and increasing community awareness of the importance of arts in education. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works for the theme. Click here to read more on the WA State PTA Reflections site.
Why enter the competition
Reflections is so much more than "just an art contest." It helps kids take risks, be inspired, think creatively, and receive positive recognition and be celebrated for their works of art. Each year, over 300K students create original works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts, in response a student-selected theme. Student winners from each PTA have the opportunity to move up through their district, region, council, and state PTA programs to the national level. National Reflections winners are announced in May and celebrated annually at the National PTA Convention & Expo in June. National PTA then collects and curates the traveling exhibit for the next year.
And locally, every student who participates will receive a ribbon and their work will be diplayed in the Virtual Art Show for the school community to see. Stevenson students will even have a chance to vote for their favorite, which will recieve the Student Choice Award!
