National Reflections

 

Q. What is it?

Reflections is a FREE national arts and recognition program/contest sponsored by the PTA. Students are invited to submit artwork inspired by a theme and are recognized for their efforts.

 

Students participate by creating original artworks at home and submitting them online on or before October 24, 2022. All students are invited at no cost to them.   

Students can turn in 1 or as many projects in as many categories as they choose-as.


Every participant will be recognized for their artistic efforts. Outside judges give special awards for artistic excellence. The first place project in each category will move on to the next level of this national program/competition to compete with artworks from other schools until a national winner is selected.
