Reflections Program 2016-2017

WHAT IS YOUR STORY

REFLECT on the theme. CREATE an original work. BE RECOGNIZED!

Since 1969, the Reflections program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to explore their artistic talents by creating works of art for fun and recognition.  Annually, hundreds of thousands of students participate in the Reflections program through their local PTAs.  Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to submit works of art in six categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Musical Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.  Local winners in each category go on to compete at the district/region and state levels. 

In showcasing and celebrating student talent, the Reflections Program increases community awareness of the importance of the arts in education.

Students with disabilities may choose to participate in the Special Artist division, which has modified rules to accommodate special needs. Please see Special Artist rules for more details.
