About The National PTA Reflections Program

The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students. The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme, while increasing community awareness on the importance of the arts in education.

The Reflections program was established in 1969 by National PTA board member, Mary Lou Anderson. Since that time, more than 10 million students have participated in the program. The program’s longevity and participation figures attest to its strength.

Participation and appreciation for the arts is the Reflections Program’s goal. Although the Reflections Program follows a “contest” format, winning should not be the emphasis. 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
      • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
      • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art
