National PTA’s Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life. Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

How does it work?
Students are invited to create works of art reflecting upon the theme for the year. Please review the category requirements and eligibility information in English or Spanish below:
Students can create as many projects as they like in as many arts categories as they like. Projects are submitted to the Belle Aire PTA and judged in divisions based on their grade: Primary (K-2), Intermediate (Grades 3-5), Middle School (Grades 6-8) and Special Artist (all grades welcome – students who identify as having a disability may enter in the Special Artist division or grade division most closely aligned to their abilities).  From the local PTA, projects advance through a judging system through council, region, state and national levels.
