Reflections Program

2019 – 2020 Theme: "Look Within"

About the PTA Reflections Program:

PTA’s Reflections Program is designed to enhance quality arts education for students in preschool through grade 12. Over the years this program has encouraged millions of students to explore their artistic talents. The Program helps parents encourage the creativity and lifelong learning of their children. It provides opportunities for children to express themselves creatively, and it provides opportunities to recognize the children’s artistic endeavors.

Reflections is a grassroots program in that local PTA units sponsor the program in their schools. Works from the local level proceed to the Council/Region level. Some from the Council/Region are sent to the State, and some from State are sent to National PTA. Recognition and awards are given at every level. Parents, teachers, and community members all play a critical role in fostering a positive learning environment for the children. Providing the Reflections Program through your local unit is one way you can promote cultural arts in your home, in your school, and in your community.

Timeline for Submission of Entries:

Local Units that are part of a Council (Portland, Clackamas, Grants Pass, Greater Albany and Springfield) will submit entries to their Council. All others will submit their entries directly to their Region Director. Oregon PTA is NOT using the online entry system offered through the National PTA Reflections website. All entries will use the paper entry form below. The deadline for all entries to be submitted to your Council or Region Level is January 10, 2020.
