"The World Would Be A Better Place If..."

Any PTA/PTSA in good standing is eligible to sponsor a Reflections Program.

Students in preschool through grade 12 submit to their PTA original works of art in dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

The rules, forms and resources necessary are located in the right-hand column.

Be sure to check with your local, region and state PTAs to learn about any specific requirements.

**NOTE - National PTA establishes the rules for Reflections.**

Reflections Theme Search

Each year, National PTA challenges students from across the country to submit theme ideas for the Reflections program. The student who submits the overall winning entry receives a cash award and their entry becomes a future Reflections theme.

Challenge the students in your PTA to submit their ideas!

2017-18 PTA Reflections Theme Search Entry Form and Instructions - coming soon!
