Reflections Art Contest


2016-2017 Reflections Chair | Lyn Noon

All children deserve opportunities to explore and be involved in the arts.

The National PTA Reflections program is PTA’s cornerstone arts program. It was developed in 1969 to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork. Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

At West Vincent Elementary, this fall program offers students an opportunity to create art around a specified theme, outside of school. These pieces are juried at a school level and then potentially at a district and state level. 

The 2017-2018 theme is Within Reach.  Students may choose to participate in one or all of the following categories:

  • Dance Choreography
  • Film Production
  • Literature
  • Music Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts

The grades are broken into Primary (Grades K-2), Intermediate (Grades 3-5) and Middle School (Grade 6)
A student can begin a project for this theme at any time. Entries will be collected in the fall of 2017.

A Student Entry Form must accompany all entries. A list of rules can be found here.  (2017-2018 forms and rules will be updated here when they are available from the state.)

If you have any questions, please contact Lyn Noon, Reflections Chairperson.
