Reflections Theme Search

Students’ shaping the direction for each Reflections program year is one of National PTA's greatest points of pride. Each year, National PTA challenges students from across the country to submit theme ideas for the Reflections program. The student who submits the winning entry receives a cash award and his/her theme is used as the foundation for the Reflections program in a following year.  

National PTA is looking for the 2015-2016 Reflections Program Theme. Is your PTA challenging students to submit ideas to the National PTA Theme Search Contest?
