What is Reflections, you ask? Let me explain:
Reflections is a National PTA-driven competition for students nationwide. This competition is a great (& fun!) opportunity for students to creatively respond to a specific theme (see below). It is completely extra-curricular and parent-driven, so no school or grading pressure! Students can enter multiple entries and in multiple categories, which include visual arts (draw/paint/etc.), photography, film production (video), dance/choreography, and music composition (original music only).
Our theme this year is: I Will Change The World By… Encourage your student to participate by creatively expressing how their own ideas, beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and actions can change the world around them. What difference can they make - locally and/or globally? Big and small?
The emphasis on judging lies with the students’ interpretation of the theme, so encourage your students to think through how this theme applies to them personally, then express it how they see fit. Beyond interpretation of the theme, entries are also judged on their Creativity (originality in theme interpretation) and Technique (level of skill demonstrated).

If you have any questions about the competition, please feel free to email our PTA Arts & Education Chair, Julie Riley at: email@example.com.
Final entries due by Thursday, October 21 to the students' teachers. Judging will happen in mid-November. A Reflections Celebration (pandemic-pending) of all Advancing and Placing Winners will occur at the General PTA Meeting in January!
