Started in 1969, Reflections is an annual arts recognition program sponsored by the National PTA. Kindergarten through 12th grade students have the opportunity to enter into six different categories: dance choreography, film/video production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts! Students may submit entries in all 6 categories, and there is no limit on the amount of entries. Reflections is designed to provide an opportunity for students of all ages and ability levels to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original work!


  1. Every year The Reflections program picks a theme. These themes are selected 2 years in advance from student entries. This year’s theme “I Matter Because……..” was submitted in 2018 by a, then, 1st Grader at Birney Elementary School in California!
