PTA REFLECTIONS CONTEST
Reflections is a national competition organized annually by the National PTA to encourage arts in education. This competition is open to kids in grades Pre-K through 12 and entries are encouraged from all children across six different categories:
The 2020-2021 school year theme is "I Matter Because...". Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts. There is also a Special Artist category for our students with special needs. Their works will be submitted with the Arlington Special Education PTA (SEPTA).
All entries should be connected to the theme via a 10-100 word artist's statement. Children may submit entries in multiple categories but only one entry is allowed per category.
The 2020-2021 are available here:
The deadline for entries is Thursday, October 22, 2020. Instructions for entry drop off will be given closer to the deadline. For information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
