National PTA's Reflections program encourages students in pre-K through grade 12 to explore and be involved in the arts.

The theme for the 2016-2017 school year is What is Your Story... Thousands of students will reflect on the theme and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, music composition, literature, photography and visual arts.  Use your imagination to create a film, song, artwork, photograph, poem, short story or dance routine.  You may enter as many times as you like in as many categories as you like.  Each entry must be accompanied by an official entry form.  Be sure to reflect the theme in your work. 

 

Categories Include:

Literature – Fiction or nonfiction, prose, poetry, drama, or short story (must not exceed 2,000 words or 8 ½ x 11 inches)

Visual Arts – Original print, drawing, painting, collage, photographic collage, metal etching or punch work, fiber work, or computer-generated artwork (must be flat, not more than 3/8 inches thick, maximum size 24 x 30 inches including a mat)

Photography – Original black-and-white or color image, single print or collage (maximum size 11 x 14 inches including a mat)

Musical Composition –Voice, instruments or a combination of both, with or without lyrics (maximum time 5 minutes, a CD recording of a performance of the composition should be submitted.)
