National PTA Reflections encourages students of all ages to unleash creative talents and be inspired. Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork, experience the fun and joy of making art and tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme. Receive positive recognition for their original works of art. All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas: · Dance/choreography · Literature · Photography · Film production · Music composition · Visual arts. Artworks are submitted first to school PTA's, where they are recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. State-level Award of Excellence honorees will receive special recognition at the National Ohio PTA Convention in April. Deadlines for entries vary by year, but typically in December/January.
