Congratulations to the 2018-2019 National PTA Reflections Program Honorees!
The National PTA announced its National PTA Reflections Program honorees on May 1. The awards honor creative interpretations of the theme “Heroes Around Me” in the areas of special artist, dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.
“Over 300,000 students from across the country and in U.S. schools overseas created original works of art as part of the 2018-2019 Reflections program,” said Jim Accomando, president of National PTA. “We applaud all of the students who participated in the program this school year, and we are thrilled to recognize the winners for their talents and creativity.”
Seven students from across the country have been honored with the Outstanding Interpretation Award, and nearly 200 students have been recognized with Awards of Excellence and Merit.
Congratulations to all the recognized students from Virginia!
Explore the Arts and Express Yourself – 2019-2020 Theme
For 50 years, National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students 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. The National PTA Reflections Program is our nation’s oldest and largest arts education program of its kind.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create and submit original works of art in one or all of the available arts categories.
2019-2020 Program Theme
The 2019-2020 theme Look Within will help students to look within themselves to determine what drives them, inspires them, and what they are most passionate about. Students can look within their communities to find the good, the bad, and what needs to be done to help their communities thrive.
Please join us to kick off your PTA Reflections Program. If your PTA/PTSA has not offered Reflections previously, this is a great opportunity to learn how to implement the program and network with other PTA leaders who have successful programs!
How to Participate
Student winners from the local level have the opportunity to move up through their district, region, council, and state PTA programs to the national level. Promote your program with our National Reflections program resources. National PTA Reflections winners are celebrated at the annual convention and student showcase.
