The National PTA Refections Art Program 2018-2019 "Heroes Around Me"

Are you looking for a way to express yourself and show others your talent as a writer, composer, photographer, visual artists, choreographer or producer? We invite you to participate in the 2018-2019 PTSA's Reflection Art program.

The Reflections program is a national program sponsored by the PTA, designed to encourage and recognize students for their creative expressions in the areas of Literature, Photography, Visual Arts. Dance/Choreography, Video/Production, and Musical Composition. 

The theme for next years is "Heroes Around Me"

Think about the theme, what it means to you and then create an original piece of artwork in one of the six categories and may enter in any of the six categories and may enter as many times as you wish.

Entries will be judged at the school level and some may advance to IPPC Council, then District level. State level, and National level, if you qualify.

Be sure to check this page next Fall when you'll find links to the 2018-2019 Rules and Guidelines from the Illinois State PTA.
