What is the Reflections Program?

Explore the Art & Express Yourself!!!

National PTA's Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.


Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.


Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.

Arizona PTA will communicate deadlines and resources via social media and newsletters


Your unit MUST be in Good Standing to be able to participate in any National PTA program, including Reflections. To be in Good Standing please see the Arizona PTA Standards of Affiliation Check List.
