2018-2019 Reflections Theme: 

"Heroes Around Me"


National PTA's Reflections program is celebrating it's 50th year! Colorado PTA Member, Mary Lou Anderson, started the Reflection program in 1969. Since that time it has become one of the most popular programs National PTA offers.Each year hundreds of thousands of students in preschool through grade 12 create and submit original works of art for fun or recognition.


Give students confidence in their abilities to explore ideas and learn through the arts! Students can now submit works in SIX areas:


  • Literature
  • Musical Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual
  • Dance Choregraphy
  • Film/Video Production


Each year, the Reflections Program challenges students to create art that supports a specific theme. Themes are selected from thousands of  ideas submitted by students through the National PTA's Reflections Program. All participating units must be in good standing.


The 2018-2019 theme "Heroes Around Me" will spark imagination and creativity in school and at home. Encourage your school to imagine, create and celebrate with Reflections during National Arts & Humanities Month this October.
